YEEC monthly meeting on June 14

Greetings Everyone!

Couple quick updates in advance of tonight’s meeting:

1. PACE passed overwhelmingly!

On May 21, by a count of 1948 to 288, York  voters approved Article 10, which enacts a new Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) ordinance.

As a result, York homeowners will be eligible to borrow up to $15,000, at 4.99% for 15 years, for energy efficiency upgrades (see chart on our website). Qualifying expenditures include upgrading heating systems, weatherizing residences, and making other improvements to cut heating bills.

At our meeting tomorrow night, Dana Fischer from Efficiency Maine will be talking to us over conference call ( or possibly video conference) to help us answer questions about where we can go next.

2. Awakening the Dreamer Symposium a huge success!

On May 27th, I attended a symposium called “Awakening the Dreamer” along with about 30 other community and business leaders from across York.  The event was organized and moderated by Paul McGowan and it was a highly enjoyable opportunity to reflect, discuss and network.  Paul will be leading a discussion of the event itself and discussing other ways our group can support the goals we discussed.

That’s all for now!
