Casco Bay Heat Pump Challenge
In 2017, South Portland held a Heat Pump Challenge Event at the South Portland Community Center. It was a huge success with more than 100 people signed up to get a discounted quote on installing a heat pump in their home.
The Cities of Portland and South Portland teamed up with the Greater Portland Council of Governments (GPCOG) and Efficiency Maine to encourage the adoption of cold climate air source heat pumps (ASHPs) in local homes and businesses through the Casco Bay Heat Pump Challenge.
Residents & businesses were invited to come:
- Learn about the energy savings of ASHPs from local experts
- Save on installation costs -- installers will be providing an event-only special discount to any attendees who sign up to receive a quote.
- Learn from residents about their experiences with heat pumps
- Discover the benefits of cold climate heat pumps

**Because of its success, this event is being planned at a regional level. Stay tuned for more information about the Greater Portland Energy Expo in October 2018.**
