April Newsletter

With the weather warming up, it is so nice to spend more time outside, whether that’s sitting on the porch, walking, gardening, or mowing the lawn! If lawncare is on the agenda, the Compact has exciting new rebates on lawn equipment. We also have a number of upcoming events to connect with community members about program resources and savings opportunities. We hope that you can join us, or that you’ll reach out with whatever energy questions you have.

Getting E-Bikes to Community Members

We’re excited to be working on a program that will offer e-bike vouchers to income-eligible residents on the Cape and Vineyard. The Compact has received an Equitable Clean Transportation Grant to help fund the program. E-Bikes are a great way to get out and get to work while reducing carbon emissions. The Compact will contract with local bike shops to carry e-bikes and to support e-bike vouchers.
