Want to learn about a no cost energy assessment?
Swing by Wellesley's Recycle and Disposal Facility (RDF/Dump) on December 15th and 21st and talk to representatives from Homeworks Energy. They are a partner with the Mass Save program, which is a state mandated, utility managed program that is funded by customers like us.
They can answer questions about the audit as well as ways to make your home more comfortable (less drafty). Learn about ways to test your heating system for safety and efficiency, alternatives to lugging AC window units around as well as space heaters, and of course ways to lower your carbon footprint.
Schedule a no cost energy assessment. It is a great way to kick of the new year.
Both Wellesley’s Municipal Light Plant and the state’s MassSave Program have increased the amount of money a homeowner can get for home energy efficiency improvements.
MASS SAVE REBATES
