Benefits of Weatherization

No one likes to waste heat or money, yet most Maine homes are far draftier than they should be and nearly all homes could benefit from increased insulation in attics, walls or basements. The Home Energy Savings Program (HESP) provides rebates on energy assessments with air sealing, as well as insulation and best in class heating systems. Bangor Natural Gas customers that complete HESP projects are able to receive doubled rebates on eligible measures.
