Because it's summer, we'll keep it short and sweet.  This month, we present several opportunities to save money, save energy and be more comfortable in your home without breaking a sweat!

Green Communities Study Committee: Presentation to Selectmen July 26
The Green Communities Study Committee will present its report and recommendations on adopting the Stretch Energy Code and joining the Green Communities program to the Board of Selectmen at their July 26th meeting.

The Green Communities Study Committee is scheduled to present to the Selectmen at 7:25 pm. Be aware that the meeting can proceed more quickly (or slowly) than anticipated, so this time is approximate.

Please join us at the Selectmen's meeting to support this important step for our town.
Appliance Rebates Available Starting July 28
Another Massachusetts refrigerator and appliance rebate program begins on July 28th. As with last year's appliance rebate program, funding is limited. So don't miss this opportunity to get a $150 rebate on an energy-efficient refrigerator and $50 on an energy-efficient air conditioner
