Missed the first round of Weatherize Rockland Signups? It’s not too late!

In the first round of the Weatherize Rockland program, more than 60 Rockland residents signed up to access discounted energy efficiency services from Penobscot Home Performance and rebates from Efficiency Maine for energy assessments, air sealing, insulation, heating systems, hot water heaters and more! From now until the end of July, we’re reopening the signup period.

Remember how drafty your house was during that cold snap in early March? Weatherize Rockland can help you tighten up your house ahead of next winter. Is your house hot and stuffy now that summer has (finally) arrived? Weatherize Rockland can help you save on heat pumps that provide air conditioning (as well as heat) and insulation that keeps you cool on those hot days. Worried about the rising price of heating oil? Weatherize Rockland can help you prepare to cut your bill next heating season and make your home more comfortable in the process.

To date, Weatherize Rockland participants saved a total of $30,000 off the cost of weatherization and will be saving even more with lower heating bills and cozier homes for years to come. If you’ve been thinking about making energy improvements to your home, now is the time! Join your neighbors in saving and sign up today at www.weatherizerockland.me/signup.

Weatherize Rockland Launches Sponsorship Program!

With the holiday season upon us and the cold weather arriving, money is tight for many Maine families this time of year. Weatherize Rockland is helping Rockland residents tighten up their homes and lower their energy bills. In an effort to make energy efficiency upgrades accessible to everyone, we’re asking for your help.

Through the combined efforts of Efficiency Maine and Weatherize Rockland, you can help a low-income family or individual obtain up to $1,000 of home weatherization and energy efficiency work for only $50! Efficiency Maine offers generous financial incentives for weatherization and energy efficiency work in low-income homes, and Weatherize Rockland has launched a sponsorship program to allow individuals and institutions to contribute $50 to cover the cost of weatherizing a single home.

This means that for only $50, you can have a dramatic positive impact on a local family or individual by helping them stay warm and save money through this and every other winter! And you’ll be helping to reduce pollution and fight climate change at the same time.

All sponsors will be recognized on the Weatherize Rockland website, Facebook page, and other public channels.

To sponsor a home, please send a check for $50 to:

Audra Caler-Bell
Acting City Manager
270 Pleasant St.
Rockland, ME 04841

Make the check payable to “City of Rockland” and write “Weatherize Rockland” on the memo line. If you wish to sponsor multiple homes, you may write larger checks in increments of $50.

Weatherize Rockland is a program of the City of Rockland’s Energy Advisory Committee. For more information, e-mail info@weatherizerockland.me. If you are a homeowner and would like to receive more information on discounted energy efficiency work in your home, please sign up at www.weatherizerockland.me/signup.
