Monthly YEEC meeting on July 13

The next York Energy Efficiency Committee meeting is this Tuesday at 7pm at the York Public Library.

We’ll be talking about PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) in more detail – and what it will take to make it a reality here in York. For more information on what PACE is you can go to this website ( – but in a nutshell, the program is part of a state-funded trust that loans people money to make energy upgrades on their home, and is paid back gradually over an extended period of time in the form of a lien on your property. The advantage is that you can start taking advantage of the energy savings immediately, while paying if off gradually — and without having to come up with a big down payment.

Apparently this program has been in effect in other states in the country to great success. Check out the latest status of the PACE  program in Maine.

We will also be talking about a number of other issues in regards to planning for 2010/2011.

As usual, all are invited join us for our discussion.
