Part of Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative’s Annual Meeting Series
Button Up New Hampshire, the popular home energy savings workshop series is coming virtually to the Plymouth Area. It will take place on Zoom on Monday, April 25th from 7:00 – 8:30pm including a live Q and A time. This free workshop is sponsored by NHSaves and hosted by the Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative (PAREI). It is one of many activities happening during PAREI’s Annual Meeting Series that will run from April 26th to May 4th.
NHSaves is a collaboration of New Hampshire’s electric and natural gas utilities (Eversource, Liberty Utilities, NH Electric Cooperative and Unitil). The utilities are working together to provide NH customers with information, incentives, and support designed to save energy, reduce costs, and protect the NH environment.
From the time PAREI was founded in 2004, their goal has been to provide Plymouth area community members with opportunities and resources to reduce their energy usage and produce renewable energy one home at a time. This NHSaves Button Up Workshop is a 1.5 hour presentation about how to improve the energy efficiency of your home. It is conducted by two certified energy auditors and covers basic building science principles as well as examples of whole house weatherization measures that will button up your home for the heating and cooling seasons.
This workshop also covers details about the energy efficiency programs offered by NH utilities (for existing homes and new construction) that provide energy audits, weatherization measures such as air sealing and insulating and rebates on new technologies and products such as electric and gas appliances and high efficiency electric heating/cooling equipment. Currently the utilities’ Home Performance with Energy Star program is offering up to a 75% incentive or up to $8000 to help homeowners pay for qualified energy improvements.
Plymouth area homeowners wishing to use energy more efficiently, conserve energy and save money on their heating and cooling bills, will find the workshop presentation very helpful. The public is welcome to attend this free workshop. Registration is not necessary, simply go to this Zoom link before 7:00pm on Monday, April 26th: https://ccsnh.zoom.us/j/93346217950
