Button Up NH workshops are designed to provide homeowners with information and techniques to help them save money on home energy use. This presentation is conducted by an independent certified energy professional, Ted Stiles. Participants will learn basic building science concepts and learn the basics about air sealing, insulating, and conservation measures that reduce fuel and electricity use.
This free workshop is organized by the Lebanon Energy Advisory Committee and sponsored by Mascoma Bank of Lebanon.According to Sandra Jones, Co-Director of the Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative, “These workshops over the past few years, have been bringing practical and valuable information to the people of New Hampshire to help them make good decisions about how to improve their home’s energy efficiency. Those attending will learn how to identify DIY energy saving opportunities and how to go a step further to have their home tested by a professional, all with the goal of having a toasty-warm home this winter for less!”

In addition, workshop participants will learn how to sign up for Home Performance with Energy Star (HPwES) – a program run by the energy efficiency services at Liberty Utilities, Eversource, NH Electric Cooperative and Unitil. HPwES is open to all NH families in these service areas and is based on whether your home has a higher than average heating fuel bill. By signing up, NH residents can access a home energy audit for $100, financial incentives up to $4000 and technical expertise.  To learn more about the Home Performance with Energy Star program go to the “Save @ Home” tab at www.nhsaves.com

The Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative (PAREI) of Plymouth, NH is working with local groups statewide to bring this important information to the public on behalf of New Hampshire’s utilities.  Look forward to seeing you at the Button Up Workshop in Lebanon on October 19!
