Hello Clean Energy Enthusiasts,

PREP is happy to announce two upcoming workshops! For those of you who attended our Clean Energy Fair in the fall, they will look familiar. We are doing encore presentations of the popular workshops from the Fair: one on Cold Climate Heat Pumps and one on Clean Energy Discounts, Rebates, and Tax Credits. Both workshops will be hybrid events. To attend via Zoom, register with the links below. No registration needed to attend in person. Refreshments will be served!

COLD CLIMATE HEAT PUMPS (in person and online)

Saturday, Feb 3, 10am, Peterborough Town Library, Eben Jones Classroom

Zoom Registration:
Is your heating system getting old? Are your oil bills expensive? Consider upgrading to clean, energy efficient heat pumps! Join us to learn how they work and how they can save you money over the long term. Plus, they are efficient air conditioners as well. Most important, they are an essential part of keeping the climate healthy for our kids and their kids.

The workshop leader will be Doug Waitt, an HVAC engineer with decades of experience designing heat pump systems in the Monadnock region.


Saturday, Mar 16, 10am, Peterborough Town Library, Eben Jones Classroom

Zoom Registration:
Find out how you can save money on your clean energy equipment and upgrades! The federal government has some generous discounts and tax credits for heat pumps, solar panels, EVs, battery storage, and more. NHSaves can cover 75% of the cost for insulating and weatherizing your home or business. Find out how in this interactive workshop.
This workshop will be led by PREP Coordinators, Bob Haring-Smith and Dori Drachman.


Peterborough/BlocPower Program

If you live in Peterborough, you can get $200 off your purchase of a heat pump system. To encourage more people to upgrade to cold climate heat pumps, the Town has partnered with BlocPower, a company with experience all over the country managing heat pump installations paired with energy audits and weatherization for greater energy efficiency. BlocPower works with vetted local contractors, checks their work, and provides financing if you want it. Go to this intake page to start the process. If you purchase a heat pump through the Peterborough/BlocPower program, you can take $200 off the price.

I hope to see you at a workshop!
Renewably yours,
