NASHUA, N.H. – March 20: Liberty Utilities in conjunction with the Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative (PAREI) and Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) will sponsor a “Button Up NH” weatherization workshop at Nashua City Hall Auditorium on March 20 from 6:30pm-8:30pm. This educational workshop is free and open to the public thanks to funding from Liberty Utilities, which continues to offer its clients and the public great energy efficiency and educational opportunities.
Certified energy professionals will present the workshops. Participants will learn basic building science concepts and learn how to undertake basic air sealing, insulation, and conservation measures to reduce fuel and electricity use, and make their home more comfortable. Workshop attendees will learn how to sign up for Home Performance with Energy Star (HPwES) – a program offered by Liberty Utilities and other state providers that offers financial incentives and technical expertise to assist homeowners with buttoning up their homes.
According to Craig Cadieux, a BPI Certified Building Analyst and Button Up Presenter, “The Home Performance Program assists residential homeowners in making 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 be eligible for a rebate of 50% of the costs up to $4000. The initial investment to take part in the program is $100 which initiates the energy audit.”
