Community Events, June 2019

If you have interest in Heat Pumps, please come to one of two community events on June 8th in Concord, or June 11th in Wayland. There will be a brief presentation on heat pumps for home and water heating, testimonials from residents who’ve installed air-source or ground-source systems and HP water heaters, and a chance to ask questions of several participating contractors in the MA Home MVP program. And please pass this on to any friends that may be interested in this.

HeatSmart CCL Results

We are happy to announce that the results of the HeatSmart Carlisle/Concord/Lincoln (CCL) program exceeded expectations! The program ran from March-August, 2018, using three selected installers: Achieve Renewables (Ground-source Heat Pumps), New England Ductless (Air-source Heat Pumps), and New Day Energy (Modern Wood Heat).  In many cases, residents chose other companies for their installation, though still received information and coaching through the program, and received the same equipment rebates.

Estimated greenhouse gas emission reductions annually are over 500 metric tons CO2/year, which increases as electricity supply becomes more renewable with time.
