The City of Bath has commissioned an engineering firm to develop a more accurate model of flood vulnerability than anything that exists for the city, and this presentation will be the first chance to get a look at this new model of Bath’s vulnerability. This new model will incorporate the combined impacts of river flooding from inland and storm surge flooding from the coast to accurately represent vulnerability to flooding today and in the future with sea level rise.

Is your home cold, drafty, and costly?

The public is invited to a presentation by Bridget Gifford, who will discuss Efficiency Maine’s residential offerings. The program will describe how homeowners can receive thousands of dollars in rebates for energy efficient upgrades. 

Gifford, program manager for Efficiency Maine, will provide an introduction to available rebates, financing options, technical resources, and Efficiency Maine’s installer locator. She will touch on topics like heat pumps, insulation, heat pump water heaters, and more. As with all of our climate conversations we expect ample time to allow for community discussions and follow-up with our presenter.
