Energy Coaches

Have you been wondering how to:

Save money on your heating and electric bills?

Make your home more comfortable?

Cut your carbon emissions?

Good timing — we want to help you make these changes in your home! Our free Energy Coach service is for York residents who want to make energy efficiency and clean-energy upgrades.  

We are volunteers, neighbors helping neighbors. We’ll help you understand your options and navigate the world of rebates, installers, and contractors. We’ll help you take the first steps to greater savings and comfort, and lower carbon emissions. 

Contact us for information and assistance with:

  • Home energy audits
  • Insulating and air-sealing your home to reduce your energy use
  • Heat pumps and heat pump water heaters
  • Solar power – on your roof or through community solar 
  • All-electric or hybrid cars
  • The amazing financial incentives from Efficiency Maine and the new Inflation Reduction Act 

We are not affiliated with contractors – our interest is to help you make the best choices you can. 

York Ready for Climate Action is offering this free service to help York reach our community-wide climate goals as set out in the York Climate Action Plan that was strongly approved by voters in 2022.  Buildings represent 3/4 of York’s total greenhouse gas emissions, and cutting emissions from our homes is a top priority.  

The Plan’s goal is to cut emissions by 50% by 2030 and 100% by 2050.  It’s a tall order. To be successful, we’ll all need to help each other switch our homes and cars from fossil fuels to electricity and to move toward clean power sources as the State continues to develop solar and other clean technologies.
