Building Science for Carpenters: Financial Incentives for High Performance Construction - Apr 25, 19
Carpenters, builders, and construction professionals gather for an evening of networking, presentations, and discussion on building science and construction techniques for high-performance building. Each month, we will have short presentations from guest speakers around a chosen topic and then open discussion among the group. Attendance is open to all. Most times, the hosts will provide drinks and snacks. But every now and then we will hold a meeting at a larger venue that will require a modest charge to offset expenses. The Building Science Group offers “scholarships” for people for whom the fee might be a deterrent. Contact Scott Palmer at BRAGB about this.
Financial incentives for high-performance construction and training.
This gathering will be your best opportunity to learn ? in one place ? about the full range of opportunities for builders and remodelers in Massachusetts to qualify for financial incentives for high-performance new construction and retrofits. We?ve gathered experts from all the various agencies and organizations who are eager to grant you money in return for upping your game with regard to home performance. You may already know about MassSave weatherization programs, but at this session you?ll also hear about MassSave for New Construction, MassSave for Renovations and Additions, the DOER?s Home MVP program, and MassCEC?s Mass Solar Loan, Solar Hot Water Rebates, and Clean Energy Internship programs to help fund your hiring of college and high school students to clean energy jobs.
