Multi-Family Home Energy Code Overview

A 2024 All Electric Ready home is $37,150 more expensive

than a 2015 Code built home.   

The extra cost to build a home meeting the new "stretch code"

is $21,392, according to the Vermont Department of Public Service.

Only 16% of Vermont households can afford the mortgage payment on a median priced new home. Vermont has the least affordable housing market in the country.
