Caldwell Banker, Cape Elizabeth, Maine
About this program:
During a pandemic is not the best time to talk about how to fund the number and range of carbon reduction strategies we need to deploy in the housing sector. Or is it? Government, the private sector, and individuals have to figure out not only what to do about getting to Net Zero carbon emissions soon, but how to pay for it. Veteran Green Broker and recovering economist Julia Bassett Schwerin follows the money for the cost effective energy savings, greenhouse gas reductions, and social justice of various proposals from the Green New Deal, the Green Bank, and Green Grants to established but underutilized mechanisms such as Federal tax credits, Efficiency Maine rebates, green mortgages and PACE loans. This is a session for everyone who wants to move toward energy efficiency and renewable energy with intelligent financial support.
