Energy efficiency talk with Efficiency Maine

The Rockland Public Library and the Rockland Energy and Sustainability Committee present Lily McVetty, Thursday, July 28, at 6:30 p.m. This event is free and open to all.

Some people would like to be as energy efficient as possible. Others simply wish their home was a little warmer or less drafty in the winter. Most would like to save money by cutting their electricity, heating, and fuel bills, but many don’t know where to start or are prevented by the expense of weatherization and other efficiency upgrades.

Efficiency Maine provides rebates designed to save you money on weatherization, efficiency heating, and the purchase of electric vehicles. This talk will cover the rebates and financing programs offered, with a focus on how heat pumps and heat pump water heaters can set the stage for a more fuel efficient household. Audience questions — general and situation specific — are encouraged.

This talk is co-sponsored by the Rockland Energy and Sustainability Committee and presented by Lily McVetty, a representative of Efficiency Maine who grew up in Rockland.

This event will take place via Zoom. Seating will also be available in the library’s Community Room to watch the Zoom call onscreen; the Rockland Public Library is located at 80 Union Street.

For more information or for Zoom links to join from home, email by 4 p.m. July 28 and identify the event you are interested in attending in the subject line.
