heat smart

From March through July of 2018, residents can purchase advanced air-source and ground-source heat pumps and wood pellet heating systems from installers selected for their high quality work and competitive pricing. These clean heating and cooling technologies can greatly reduce your greenhouse gas emissions, reduce your energy costs, and improve the comfort of your home.

Join us at any HeatSmart Launch Event to learn more, ask questions and meet the installers:

March 14, 7:00 pm - Carlisle Town Hall

March 21, 6:30 pm - Lincoln Bemis Hall

HeatSmart Carlisle/Concord/Lincoln is supported by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources, the Towns of Carlisle, Concord and Lincoln, and a volunteer team including Concord’s Comprehensive Sustainable Energy Committee.                                

Comprehensive Sustainability and Energy Committee Mission Statement

The purpose of CSEC is to encourage adoption of sustainability policies and practices in the Concord community. 
At Concord’s 2017 Town Meeting, voters adopted Article 51 setting goals for reducing the Town’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions dramatically in the coming years, which CSEC enthusiastically supported.  In a 2016 analysis, over 60% of Concord’s GHG emissions come from the residential sector, compared with about 35% from commercial and 4% from municipal facilities and schools. With this in mind, CSEC has shifted its focus recently towards helping our fellow residents reduce emissions and save money.  The Cooler Concord Fair organized by CSEC in February 2017, brought over 1000 residents together to learn about the significant actions they can take.
