February Newsletter


Although many of us are eagerly counting down to spring, the cold, snowy days (and Punxsutawney Phil seeing his shadow!) suggest winter weather is here to stay for a while. Now is a great time to take advantage of the Compact's incentives on heating equipment and weatherization, including up to 100% off insulation costs for renters and income-eligible customers. And if you're a local business, the "off-season" can be an ideal time to use the Compact's instant incentives to help you save on equipment upgrades that help optimize operations. In this newsletter, we highlight these residential and business incentives, plus call out some exciting community news about progress toward a healthier, more sustainable region.
