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.
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; additional communities are planning to join the program. 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.
