    How to Save Money on Home Energy Bills!

    With rising costs in heating and electricity it's hard to know the best ways to save energy in the home and stay comfortable in the winter and the summer! Come learn more about what you can do to save money in your home and be more comfortable year-round, and bring your questions about what options make the most sense and will save the most money! We'll also go over the rebates available for Maine homeowners and what additional federal funding will be coming with the recently-passed Inflation Reduction Act.

    Colin McCullough is a BPI-certified Home Energy Auditor who has worked for several state energy efficiency programs for 12 years, advising homeowners on the most efficient options for a more affordable, comfortable and safe home. He is currently renovating his 110-year-old home in Farmingdale to achieve Net-Zero Energy status.
