Inflation Reduction Act Webinar Coming Soon!

When: March 22nd, 2023 at 6 PM via Zoom 

The recent passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) has received a lot of attention for being a great step towards shaping America’s energy future. But what does that mean for you? Join the Topsham Energy Committee and Nat Haslett the Regulatory and Legislative Affairs Manager at Efficiency Maine, to explore what the IRA means for your home or business. In this webinar, we’ll talk about the IRA’s incentives for energy efficiency improvements and electric vehicles, how you can access them, and what’s known about the timeline of their roll-out.


Weatherize Your Home!

Most homeowners waste 20% to 40% of their heating bill through leaky walls, attic, basement, windows, and doorways. Weatherizing is the low-hanging fruit that should be the first step in making your home more energy-efficient. In this one-hour session, you will hear from building professionals and energy advisors about the benefits of a complete energy audit, which finds the most cost-effective steps to save you money by tightening the building envelope and increasing insulation. We’ll also discuss rebates with Efficiency Maine, options for inexpensive window inserts with Window Dressers, and a free weatherization/repair program with Habitat for Humanity7 Rivers that make these investments even more affordable. For more information view this Weatherization Booklet.


Beneficial Electrification Webinar

Topsham share their stories about how they're electrifying their lifestyles. They are joined by Efficiency Maine to help explain new energy-efficient technologies and rebate programs.


Solar Energy Options

Purchasing and installing a solar array at your home is no longer the only option if you want to go solar. Even if you rent your home or don't want to purchase a rooftop system, there are many programs that will enable you to still benefit from solar electricity. Want to get the details on those subscription solar flyers you keep getting in the mail? Or learn more about how those offers differ from a share of a solar farm? And how does rooftop match up? How about learning more about the Renewable Energy Credit market?
