HeatSmart CCL closed to new sign-ups at the end of August 2018. Thank you for your interest and support in making our program a success!
Thank you for your support!
Thank you for your interest and participation in HeatSmart CCL! As of August 31, 2018, HeatSmart CCL is no longer accepting new signups. If you are interested in working with one of the installers we selected—Achieve Renewable Energy (GSHP), New Day Energy (modern wood heating), and New England Ductless (ASHP)—feel free to reach out to them for a site visit.
HeatSmart CCL was a resounding success: with your help, we reached thousands of residents in the towns of Carlisle, Concord, and Lincoln, over 300 of whom signed up for our program. In total, 64 homeowners signed contracts to install clean heating and cooling systems, which will save our communities thousands of dollars and hundreds of tons of greenhouse gas emissions a year. A special thanks to all of the volunteers who supported our efforts, including but not limited to, students from Concord-Carlisle High School.
