Default Efficiency Vermont RO Rebate Program

NEW Efficiency Vermont Program starts today for Vermont Maple Syrup Producers

Sugaring season is currently winding down, but it’s a great time to start thinking about next year!

Never had a maple reverse osmosis (RO) system before?
Did you know it could cut your boiling time by 50-75%, using less fuel/wood and freeing up your time?

If you had more than 250 taps or 60 gallons of syrup produced in 2014 a RO might be right for you.
Get a quote from a vendor and fill out our Maple RO Pre-Qualification Form.
The Form can also be found on our website here:

Rebate Levels for Maple RO
Gallon per Hour (GPH) Rating Rebate per System
50-149 $1,000
150-299 $1,500
300-599 $2,000
600-999 $2,500
1000+ $3,000

Please keep in mind:
• Must be a first-time RO purchase for an existing sugaring operation.
• RO system must be purchased between 1/1/15 and 11/30/15.
• Funds for this program are limited. Preapprovals are required and rebates will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. If necessary, a waiting list will be developed.
• Maximize your chances and submit a pre-qualification form for approval as soon as possible.
• This rebate can be used in conjunction with other grant/loan programs; for example the USDA Rural Energy for America Program.

We will be out-and-about the weekend of the VT Maple Festival spreading the word. Hope to see you there!

If you have any questions about this program or other Efficiency Vermont services do not hesitate to reach out.
Thanks, Jenn

Thanks Doc I cant imagine living without one. I hope the small tap producers get in and get the benefit of this program. Having 1000 taps I saved $5,000.00 in fuel this year and about 8 hrs a day in boiling time plus I got paid $1500.00 more for the top grade price over my usual grade B along with other suggestions I read on Sugar Bush Info. My unit used along with all the supporting elec, plumbing was paid back in three years. Thanks again.
