Energy Efficiency In Low-Income Housing- passivhausMAINE and the Maine Climate Table

  • Maple Hilll Inn and Conference Center 11 Inn Road Hallowell, ME, 04347 United States (map)


This event is co-sponsored by PassivHausMAINE and the Maine Climate Table and will draw participants from public housing, low-income and climate activists, State government, builders and developers as well as environmental organizations.

We are seeking answers to questions like: How can low-income residents of public housing benefit from Net Zero/PassivHaus construction technologies that produce bare minimum energy bills? And simultaneously produce other significant benefits like improved indoor air quality, resilience in extreme weather, sound attenuation and carbon emissions reductions. Why not?

This will be a facilitated discussion with travel reimbursement available to those who need it. Presenters on the Resource Panel will include representatives from Avesta Housing, Maine State HousingAuthority, and PassivHausMAINE. This will be the fifth such conversation that the Climate Table has co-hosted in the past eight months in locations across Central and Southern Maine.

This event will be an energizing discussion of an important topic for both energy efficiency and for Maine’s low-income population.
