Ripton Energy Assistance Program (REAP)


Since 2008, this local program assists Ripton residents with fuel assistance and home energy-saving equipment and assessment.

Firewood: Short-term emergency firewood is available while it lasts for Ripton residents behind the REAP woodshed next to the Ripton Fire Station at 25 Dugway Road. Limit your use to a few armfuls so that others in need can access this supply. If you need help getting the wood or if the supply is gone, please notify Mac Cox at 388-7820.

Fuel assistance: You may apply for assistance to purchase fuel oil or propane through HOPE (Help Overcome Poverty's Effects) at 388-3608 or call Mac Cox at 388-7820. If you have exhausted your state fuel assistance funds and will run out of fuel before the end of cold weather, call Mac Cox to see about a fuel oil, propane or firewood delivery.

PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) is a new program whereby a homeowner may pay for energy efficiency or renewable energy improvements via a long term loan that is billed and collected on the same schedule as their property tax. See these documents or contact Warren King at 388-4082 (Ripton Energy Coordinator) for more information.

Lend a hand: REAP organizes occasional volunteer events to cut, split and move firewood. To receive notification, leave your name and email address or phone number with Sally Hoyler, Ripton Town Clerk, at 388-2266 or

REAP depends on volunteer financial support. To contribute, make your check out to REAP/HOPE and send it to Mac Cox at P.O. Box 100, Ripton VT 05766. Your contributions are tax-deductible.
