Maine Governor Announces Weatherization Incentives

Governor John E. Baldacci of Maine has announced a new statewide benefit for homeowners seeking to improve energy efficiency.

Dubbed the “Maine Home Performance Program,” all Maine homeowners may participate. By making eligible improvements they can access rebates of up to $3,000.

The program, administered by
Efficiency Maine, is designed to encourage residents of the state to consider improving their homes to save energy. Last year the Legislature passed the Governor’s energy bill that set the goal to weatherize all Maine homes and half of Maine businesses by 2030.
