NHSaves Button Up Workshop

September 24, 2019 6:00PM


Button Up New Hampshire, the popular home energy savings workshop series, is coming to Claremont. The Claremont Energy Advisor Committee, City of Claremont, Home Depot of Claremont and LaValley’s Building Supply are hosting this free workshop for residents and it will take place at the Sugar River Valley Technical Center 111 South St. Claremont, NH on Tuesday September 24th. Doors will open at 6:00pm and the workshop will start at 6:30pm. The workshop is sponsored by NHSaves and coordinated statewide by the Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative (PAREI).

NHSaves is a collaboration of New Hampshire’s electric and natural gas utilities (Eversource, Liberty Utilities, NH Electric Cooperative and Unitil). The utilities are working together to provide NH customers with information, incentives, and support designed to save energy, reduce costs, and protect the NH environment. PAREI of Plymouth, NH is working with local groups around the state to bring these workshops to the public on behalf of New Hampshire’s utilities.

The NHSaves Button Up Workshop is a 1.5 hour presentation about how to improve the energy efficiency of your home. It is conducted by a certified energy auditor and covers basic building science principles as well as examples of whole house weatherization measures that will button up your home for the heating and cooling seasons.  It also covers details about the energy efficiency programs offered by NH utilities (for existing homes and new construction) that provide energy audits, weatherization measures such as air sealing and insulating and rebates on new technologies and products such as electric and gas appliances and high efficiency electric heating/cooling equipment.

NH residents wishing to use energy more efficiently, conserve energy and save money on their heating and cooling bills, will find the workshop presentation very helpful.   The local workshop organizer, Rebecca MacKenzie of the Claremont Energy Advisor Committee, said “We have brought this workshop to our town to bring this important information to our fellow community members. Learning how to save energy while making our homes more comfortable is a good thing to do. I hope many people will take the time to attend this informative workshop.”

The workshop is free and no registration is necessary.
