Renew Boston began our fall and winter series of heating and insulation workshops this October with events at Lower Mills Public Library and Hyde Park Community Center. Over 100 residents came out to see us and learn about heating systems, incentive programs and financing options.
We are excited to share that 70 people signed up for a home energy visit as a result of these sessions. Money savings on utility bills and a desire to keep the home comfortable were the most popular reasons people cited for their interest, and about a third of them described their homes as over 80 years old.
One man mentioned that he had spent $6,000 on his utilities last year because of the poor insulation and old heating system. He admitted it was time to improve and was excited to learn about the Mass Save expanded heat loan, an option that many other attendees were keen to hear more about as well.
Our team works hard to connect residents with information and opportunities for a warmer, safer, efficient, and more comfortable home. We are constantly improving our programs, so if you have participated before or would like to invite us for a workshop, please take a moment to complete our survey.
We are hosting our next workshop at the Grove Hall Library on November 18th, 2017 from 10 am to 11:30 am. You can RSVP for the event here.
These workshops are one of the most impactful ways we are able to engage with community members on how to take energy efficient actions. Renew Boston thanks you for your participation and we look forward to seeing you at our next event.
