Zero Energy Now Informational Session

Learn how you can cut energy costs in your home or business by 50% to 100% while taking advantage of up to $7,500 in incentives.

Zero Energy Now is a new, comprehensive energy improvement program, providing efficiency upgrades to your building along with renewable heating (such as heat pumps and biomass), and solar photovoltaics. You can move your home or business toward using zero energy at little or no monthly cost, with energy savings paying for financing. By doing so, you will increase your comfort, cut your carbon emissions, and eventually have virtually no energy costs at all! As an added bonus, up to $7,500 in incentives are available to program participants located in former Central Vermont Public Service (CVPS) territory.

Bob Walker of the Sustainable Energy Resource Group (SERG) will give an overview of Zero Energy Now and answer questions. Local weatherization and solar contractors affiliated with the program will be on hand with informational displays. Light refreshments will be served. The session is sponsored by Brattleboro Climate Protection, the Brattleboro Energy Committee, Sustainable Energy Outreach Network, and the Marlboro College Graduate School.

Monday, May 16, 5:30 – 7:30 pm
Marlboro College Graduate School
28 Vernon Street, Brattleboro
