The Brooklin Climate Response Committee was set up by the Select Board in the Fall of 2022 to help the Town enroll in the Governor’s Climate Resilience Partnership Program. This program helps Maine towns apply for grants and assistance in addressing climate mitigation and resilience. The BCRC has since moved on to other projects aimed at helping the Town and it’s residents make energy efficiency improvements that will result in healthier, more comfortable and more economical homes and businesses.
BCR Neighbor to Neighbor Home Visits – Invite members of our committee into your home for a free one hour consultation on ways to save money and enjoy greater comfort. We’ll ask some questions and check out several areas of your home, then prepare a report of our findings. We’ll explain how rebates and tax incentives can help you lower the cost of improvements, and even put you in touch with installers that will help lower your heating and utility bills. Link to signup form.
Drop In to the Friend Memorial Library and chat with a member of Brooklin Climate Response on the first Saturday of each month, 10:00 to noon. Join us for a cup of coffee, ask questions and get ideas about how you can save money by improving your energy efficiency.
School Renovation Efficiency Improvements – The BCRC is working to help the Brooklin School Renovation Committee with decisions that will bring our school forward into a future with healthier air, lower costs and improved resilience during extreme weather events.
Lowering Municipal Costs – BCR is working with the Town to update lighting and heating technologies to lower the town’s utility bills and help keep taxes low.
