t’s NOT Too Late to Sign Up for Weatherize Hanover
We are excited to report to the Ray School community that as of Jan. 26th, 51 Hanover households have signed up with the Weatherize Hanover Campaign to schedule an energy audit and learn how they can make their homes more energy efficient, more comfortable and healthier.
Weatherizing your home saves money and helps reduce one's carbon footprint. Weatherize Hanover has taken the guesswork out of the process and made it as easy as possible for homeowners. In addition, if you schedule an energy audit by March 13th, you will be entered in a drawing to win $100 toward the cost of your weatherization project.
For information about where to start on a home weatherization project, check our website: hanovernh.org/weatherize There you will find general information about weatherizing, how to apply for weatherization rebates, and information about the contractors involved in our program.

Sun., Feb. 2, 3-5 pm, Howe Library Cafe
