to Discuss Regional Energy Efficiency Funds and Plans

Barnstable, MA – Looking to save money on energy bills?  The Cape Light Compact is inviting town energy committees and interested citizens from the Lower Cape to participate in a conversation about future energy efficiency plans and funds to be available for consumers.  This will be the first of three regional meetings; other meetings are being planned for the Mid-Cape and Upper Cape.

What:  Lower Cape Save Money / Save Energy Meeting

When: Wednesday, June 3, 2015, 5-7 pm 

Where: Harwich Community Center, Room 2, 100 Oak Street, Harwich, MA 02645   

Who: The program is open to any interested citizen

Light refreshments will be served. 

In 2014, 97 businesses and 2,529 households in Brewster, Harwich, Chatham and Orleans took advantage of the Compact’s Energy Efficiency programs.  Many more could benefit from the free energy assessments, rebates and incentives that are available, as well as new programs now under consideration.

The Compact is preparing a three-year plan to guide its 2016-2018 energy efficiency programs.  The three-year plan could expand into a number of new opportunities.  The Compact is seeking input on the program concepts to ensure that they meet the needs of all local consumers.  The meeting will also provide some surprising new information about alternatives to meet the challenge of the ban on natural gas hookups in the area.  New options and rebates are being developed for heating and cooling by the Compact in collaboration with Massachusetts Division of Energy Resources and others.  These options can provide households and businesses with opportunities for substantial savings. 

Launched in 2001, the Compact’s energy efficiency programs have won numerous national and state awards.  Currently the region’s consumers will save more than $495 million over the lifetime of installed measures and improvements.
