*The maximum rebate amount for weatherization through NHSaves was recently increased from $4,000 to $8,000, covering 50% of approved measures. This summer, Eversource and New Hampshire Electric Coop customers were temporarily eligible for 90% of project costs up to $8,000 for projects completed by Nov. 15, 2020. As of mid-August, NHSaves reports that any NEW customers will likely not be able to meet the deadline for that 90% rebate offer, since their contractors’ installation schedules are now filled through the fall. Customers are still encouraged to enroll in the program to receive the 50% rebate on weatherization services completed this year or next.

This webinar is hosted by Vital Communities, Kearsarge Climate Action, Sustainable Hanover, and the Cornish and Plainfield Energy Committees.
