Three Vermont groups are going to share up to $34 million as part of a five-year grant from the Environmental Protection Agency to promote energy efficiency.
The organizations will provide technical, analytical and outreach assistance to the national ENERGY STAR program in the commercial, institutional, and industrial sectors.
The groups taking part are the Vermont Law School's Institute for Energy and the Environment, The Clark Group, an environmental consulting and government affairs firm with offices in Montpelier and Washington, and the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation, which manages Efficiency Vermont.
Under the contract, the EPA may acquire up to $34 million in services from the three organizations.
The actual fees will depend upon the specific tasks ordered by the EPA.
