In 2013, the coalition worked with Steve Davis, a Hartford builder with long record of energy-efficient construction and community engagement, to take on the 10-home pilot phase of the project. Shortly thereafter, Vermod opened its doors. The company quickly outgrew its first location, and moved to its current location in an old UPS warehouse in Wilder.
Today, Vermod has set over 75 zero-energy modular homes around the state and employs 20 Upper Valley residents. Partnering with Efficiency Vermont’s Zero Energy Modular (ZEM) Program, Vermod continues to provide affordable housing for low- and moderate-income Vermonters with a special focus on replacing mobile/manufactured homes with ZEM.
