Energy Services Update 6-24-10

The Treasure Chest of Energy Savings Tour of the islands was a success. We finished on Shaw Island with the biggest crowd of all. Thank you to all who took the time to participate in our, sometimes lively, meetings. Questions and answers were flowing! The presentation is now posted for those who missed it.

Also, check out our newly updated energy efficiency programs and rebate forms now online.

We are finalizing  set-up of the Home Energy Assessment Program. Those of you who have signed up for energy audits will be contacted in July. We will explain to you what the assessment consists of and hopefully put your house on the schedule.  We will have more detailed information coming soon–keep checking the website. 

OPALCO has initiated a public process to develop a new green power program called Member Owned Renewable Energy (MORE). Nominations to the MORE Steering Committee are due tomorrow (6/25). Click here for more info on the Steering Commitee and how to apply.

The Steering Committee will start meeting in mid-July–check back here for meeting dates, times and places. The mission is to create a new green power program including criteria, scope, structure and funding mechanisms and to present a proposal to OPALCO staff who can bring it before the Board for approval and policy making. The Committee will meet frequently through the summer with a goal of presenting a new program proposal in the fall.
