Evergreen Home Performance in the Community: Adas Yoshuron Synagogue

Posted July 20, 2012, at 10:03 a.m.

Although Evergreen Home Performance focuses primarily on residential energy efficiency, we can’t resist projects that cut costs and improve comfort for the whole community. Controlling costs is particularly important for organizations and municipalities serving many needs on increasingly tight budgets. Evergreen’s comprehensive energy analysis and customized improvement projects have helped organizations across the state cut air leakage by as much as 50%. We understand that boards, trustees, and community groups have a certain process, and our detailed, data-driven proposals make it easy to explain the investment and projected savings to stakeholders.

Evergreen Home Performance offers FREE consults to representatives of community organizations as well as to homeowners. Call 594-2244 to schedule your free one-hour consult and learn how you and your organization can gain comfort and cut costs with energy efficiency upgrades that pay for themselves.

This week Evergreen is working at the Adas Yoshuron Synagogue in Rockland, Maine. Building committee members approached Energy Advisor Jessie Davis in March because they’d much rather focus on worship than on how to pay the oil bill – and Jessie engineered a project that would let the congregation do just that. It’s an interesting story, one with multiple decision-makers, strict scheduling requirements, and a few surprises along the way. The ending is happily familiar: a more comfortable, energy-efficient, community building.

And it’s not the only one. Here are a few of the other community and municipal buildings Evergreen has helped transform:

Rockland Public Library, Rockland

Knox County Courthouse, Rockland

Somerset County Courthouse, Skowhegan

Deborah Lincoln House, Assisted Living Facility, Belfast

Talbot Home, Assisted Living Facility, Rockland

U Maine Cooperative Extension Building, Skowhegan

College of the Atlantic dormitories, Bar Harbor
