“Button Up NH” Weatherization Workshop
Free Home Energy Savings Workshop
The Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative and the Franklin Opera House have joined forces to bring a Button Up NH Workshop to Franklin, NH, Wednesday, November 20th at 6:30pm. This workshop is designed to provide you with information and techniques to help you save money on home energy use. Participants will learn basic building science concepts and learn the basics about air sealing, insulating, and conservation measures that reduce fuel and electricity use.
Workshop participants will learn how to sign up for Home Performance with Energy Star (HPwES) – a program open to customers of Liberty Utilities, PSNH, NH Electric Coop and Unitil. HPwES is open to all NH families and is solely based on whether your home has a higher than average heating fuel bill. By signing up for the HPwES program, NH residents can access a Home Energy Audit for $100, financial incentives up to $4000 and technical expertise.
According to Craig Cadieux, a BPI Certified Building Analyst and the presenter for Wednesday night’s workshop, “The Home Performance with Energy Star Program is something every homeowner should consider. It gives homeowners the assistance they need to make energy efficiency improvements to their homes. When a homeowner participates in the program they will receive a list of recommendations for cost effective energy efficiency improvements and will have the opportunity to decide, if any, the work they want done on their home.”
