DURHAM, N.H. -- Tired of cold or drafty spots around your house? Want to reduce home energy use and save money but not sure where to start? Wondering what financial resources are available to help make efficiency improvements?
The New England Carbon Challenge, a joint initiative of the University of New Hampshire and Clean Air-Cool Planet, has just announced the release of its new comprehensive web tool - the Energy Project Connector. This web tool makes implementing a home energy project much easier.
The Energy Project Connector is the first in a new suite of My Energy Plan web tools available at http://myenergyplan.net/. This tool searches all the federal, state and utility incentives available for a home energy job in New Hampshire and then provides a list of all the contractors and energy auditors who can do that work in New Hampshire and its border communities in Massachusetts, Maine and Vermont. The reported information is specific to each user based on where they live and what kind of project they are interested in pursuing.
The Energy Project Connector compresses multiple hours of web research and investigation into a relatively simple 15 minute exercise. It is free and available to the public at http://myenergyplan.net/energyConnector/.
My Energy Plan is brought to you by the New England Carbon Challenge, in partnership with New Hampshire Sustainable Energy Association and UNH Cooperative Extension. Funding for this tool was made possible through the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Fund of the NH Public Utilities Commission.
