Less than a week after the official press conference for NB Energy Now, the new 3-in-1 umbrella energy program in the City of New Bedford, the phones are ringing off the hook. The program is essentially: Energy Challenge meets targeted goals for home energy efficiency and weatherization, as well as residential and small commercial solar installation! NB Energy Now truly has something for everyone, from students to seniors to community groups and small businesses.
Mayor Lang served as the Master of Ceremonies at the NB Energy Now Press Conference last Wednesday at New Bedford City Hall. Pictured right, from left to right: New Bedford Mayor Scott Lang; DOER Commissioner and Fairhaven resident, Mark Sylvia; Penni Connor,Vice-President of Customer Care at NSTAR; and Norman Rebeiro of the New Bedford POWER Project. Our own SEEAL Director, Jennifer Marshall Grantham, and John DeVillars of BlueWave Capital also spoke at the event.
The message is clear: New Bedford as a city, a community of people, and an emerging sustainability leader in the SouthCoast, is taking action to improve the efficiency and comfort of local homes and businesses, and everyone is getting involved. What makes this program so special is the incredible partnerships, cooperation, and goodwill that has been fostered in a truly unique public-private team. The program is a joint effort by the City of New Bedford, local solar businesses Beaumont and Real Goods Solar, as well as key community partners including Green Jobs Green Economy Initiative/POWER, Old Bedford Village, and SEEAL and the SouthCoast Energy Challenge.
The result is a one stop shop for energy solutions. Through a combination of careful planning and incredible teamwork, NB Energy Now offers residents the full range of options for energy efficiency, conservation, and solar opportunities, as well as support to help folks navigate the process.
SO, if you live in New Bedford and you have not yet: gotten a home energy assessment, considered going solar, or ‘taken the Challenge,’ there’s no time like the present! Contact us, and register today!
