The recently passed Inflation Reduction Act offers a number of initiatives for changing from fossil fuel usage to electricity and renewable energy.
In addition to these federal opportunities, Efficiency Maine gives rebates for insulation, heat pump installation, and electric as well as hybrid vehicles. See www.efficiencymaine.com
Some Maine cities also offer rebates. One of these municipalities is South Portland which has launched a program called Electrify Everything. Qualified residents can receive up to $2000 in addition to the Efficiency Maine program for changing to renewable energy sources and insulating their homes. See www.southportland.org
Now is an excellent time to consider making changes that will help reduce carbon emissions and help the Earth.
