On First Day of Spring, Seacoast Communities Launch New Hampshire’s First Clean Energy Transformation Initiative
Monday, March 20th, 7-9pm

DURHAM, NH – Energy leaders from five New Hampshire communities have joined forces to launch Energize 360, a first-of-its-kind campaign to save money and help save the planet by providing citizens a suite of new energy efficiency and clean energy options at bulk discounts.
“Spring is here and there’s no better time for homeowners and businesses to take control of their energy future by availing themselves of proven solutions that save money, lower energy use, and transition to clean renewable energy for the good of our state,” said Daniel Clapp, General Manager of ReVision Energy, the local industry leader in renewable energy solutions and lead Energize 360 vendor chosen through competitive bidding.
Every participant in Energize 360 in the NH Seacoast will get a free site visit, a Home Heating Index score, and a comprehensive analysis of their energy usage specific to their home. Energize 360 offers energy audits, weatherization, solar electric systems, heat pump installations, and more, as well as help qualifying for all available rebates and incentives.
“With the cost of solar panels down 75% over the last decade, anyone with a roof or lawn and a clear view to the sun has the potential to generate their own electricity,” Clapp added. “And thanks to complementary technologies offered by Energize 360, you can now use that power to heat your home, charge your vehicle, and power your daily life.”
Energize 360 includes tiered discounts for consumers and pledges to fund clean energy projects in each of the communities of Dover, Durham, Lee, Northwood and Portsmouth. The funds available for community projects and the discounts available to homeowners and business owners both increase as participation in the campaign increases. The program ends June 30th.
Energize 360 is a partnership between Seacoast Regional Energy Hub, Seacoast Area Renewable Energy Initiative (SEAREI), ReVision Energy, and Yankee Thermal Imaging. The participating program vendors were selected by an independent committee through a competitive bidding process that took into consideration competence and cost. Energize 360 discounts cannot be combined with other discounts.
“It’s exciting to see more and more local communities stepping forward to address high energy costs and chart a more sustainable future through Energize 360 and other innovative campaigns,” concluded Jack Ruderman, Director of Community Solar Initiatives at ReVision Energy. “Why send millions of dollars out of state or overseas for dirty fossil fuels when we can generate our own clean electricity at lower cost on our own roof or backyard?”
