Eligible Renewable/Other Technologies:
The State Home Oil Weatherization (SHOW) Program provides cash payments to eligible homeowners and contractors. This applies to both for-profit and non-profit contractors. These pay to install energy-efficient heating equipment and make home weatherization improvements.
Eligible dwellings must receive their primary heating fuel from a fuel oil dealer. Eligible fuel oil dealers are those who retail at least heating oil or dyed diesel, but any other fuel purchased from them is eligible. Dwelling owners (including rental property owners) and contractors are eligible to apply.
The program separates cash payments into two tiers. The income of the occupying household residing in the dwelling at the time of application determines eligibility. To be considered eligible, household income must be low-income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. Household income eligibility requirements are produced by the U.S. Department of Energy.

- $4,500 for dwelling insulation measures ($1,500 per region); and/or
