U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), is joined by Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger and a member of the Wagner family, owners of Waggy’s store and deli, the first business to participate in the innovative financing program that helps pay for energy efficiency improvements. The deli is the first business to participate in the program that lets customers take advantage of savings on their monthly utility bills to pay for energy-saving improvements.
Authorized by a Sanders provision in a 2011 energy bill, a $1 million grant to the Burlington Electric Department helped launch the on-bill financing program.
