VHCB provides program oversight for the Zero Energy Modular Housing Program, creating high performance modular homes to increase the supply of quality affordable housing in Vermont. The program is a partnership with Efficiency Vermont. Early support came from the High Meadows Fund of the Vermont Community Foundation. VLITE (Vermont Low-Income Trust for Electricity) recently contributed $300,000 towards solar photo voltaic panels and high performance electrical mechanical systems to be installed in these homes over the next two years.
The homes utilize quality construction and materials as well as the latest in highly efficient energy technology. All aspects of the design have been considered to provide the homeowner with the most comfort, value, and savings available in a new modular home. High performance, 66’-70’ single-wide modular homes are sold to homeowners or rented in non-profit owned mobile home parks or on private lots throughout the state of Vermont.
