The Vermont Fuel Tank Rebate is closed.


Since 2018, VFDA and NORA have distributed more than $200,000 in tank rebates directly to Vermont oilheat consumers.

Will the rebate be back in 2020?

Check back here in February.

Heating oil dealers are prohibited from filling a tank

if it fails to meet the following five minimum standards:


1) The tank must be on a stable foundation.

2) It must have a working vent alarm (whistle).

3) Both the fill pipe and the vent pipe must have a minimum diameter of 1-1/4 inch.

4) If below grade or buried in concrete, the fuel line between the tank and the burner must be either plastic coated copper or sleeved.

5) A fuel oil tank can not have leaks, drips, pitting, rust, dents, cracks or corrosion.

Make sure your tank is OK to fill.  Contact your heating fuel provider to schedule a tank inspection. Click here to find a service provider in your area.
