This year’s theme is the Pathway to a Zero Energy Home! A zero-energy ready home is a high-performance home that is so energy efficient that a renewable energy system could offset most or all the home’s annual energy use. The process is more affordable than you may think, and Rhode Island Energy can guide you along the path. From reducing home drafts to deploying your own renewable energy system or purchasing an electric vehicle, we can lend you our expertise and help you find savings and incentives at every turn.
Did you know that Rhode Island Energy offers each customer thousands of dollars in incentives on new high-efficiency heat pumps? Now is the time to take advantage of the latest electric heat pump technology to heat, cool, and save energy in your home all year long. Today’s cold-climate heat pumps can provide efficient heating at outdoor temperatures as low as -15° and can either work with or replace your current system. From central heat pumps to mini-splits, we can help you connect with a local participating contractor to discuss the best solution for your home. We’re ready to help with generous rebates and zero-interest loans if you qualify.
Rhode Island is on the road to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. You can be a part of the energy transition – get on the pathway to zero-energy ready!
The talents of the Warwick Career Tech Center Carpentry and Electrical students will be on display again this year. Under the direction of the Rhode Island Builder’s Association, students will get hands-on experience constructing a cross-section of an all-electric home from solar to appliances and heating, to controls, and battery storage.
