Interested in installing an alternative-energy system for your home or business, but having problems finding accurate information about the array of loans, rebates, incentives, and tax write-offs that might help pay the bill?
Then plan to attend a workshop on “Alternative Financing Strategies for Alternative-Energy Projects,” on Saturday morning, October 19, in the Andover Town Hall. And bring your questions.
Hosted by the Andover Energy Group, the workshop will take place between 10:00 a.m. and noon and is open to the public at no charge. Refreshments will be served.
On hand to lead the workshop and answer questions will be Tyler Gilday, vice president and director of retail lending at Lake Sunapee Bank, along with Steve Condon, sales and marketing manager with ReVision Energy, a leading installer of solar-electric and solar hot-water systems in northern New England.
At Lake Sunapee Bank, Gilday and his team offer an Energy Efficient Home Loan program. They also offer traditional home equity loans and lines of credit that can be used to finance energy improvements, and work with property appraisers to appropriately value buildings that meet certain energy-efficiency standards.
ReVision Energy has recently installed large solar arrays at Proctor Academy and Colby-Sawyer College, along with smaller systems at several Andover residences. It also assists clients in finding and applying for financial assistance.
The Andover Energy Group is a voluntary organization interested in learning more about, and publicizing, alternative-energy solutions and steps to improve energy efficiency in homes and other buildings.
The Andover Town Hall is located on Main Street next to the fire station and across the street from the post office. Ample parking is available behind the building.
