Hundreds of Mainers weatherizing, upgrading heating systems

During a period that is typically quiet for weatherization and insulation contractors, this summer, business is booming. Since last September, when Efficiency Maine started offering Home Energy Savings Program rebates of up to $1,500 for home weatherization and heating system upgrades, more than 5,000 projects have been completed. In a span of 10 months, projects totaling more than $23 million in energy upgrades were completed and homeowners have received an average rebate of $848 from Efficiency Maine.
