West Springfield Thu 1/10: More Green for your Wallet: Energy and Business Efficiency

Part I: MassSave and/or Eversource on Efficiency and Heat Pumps

We'll be talking about energy efficiency and new technology to replace existing heat equipment, including high efficiency boilers, furnaces, and heat pumps.

This part of the presentation will be given by Joe Robinson of MassSave. If we can, we'll have Eversource send a representative as well, and we may cover the Columbia Gas explosions and response.

Part II: Interview with Mary Thayer and Doug Thayer

There's no better way to learn than by listening to and asking questions of an experienced family business. Mary Thayer and her son Doug Thayer will be sitting for an interview about calculating return on investment, making regular inspections, and tenant-proofing apartments. This is all part of running an efficient business.
