PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A nonprofit group is promoting its new report aimed at giving Maine consumers facts about different home heating options.
Environment Northeast says it has produced heating facts reports outlining the costs of different heating options in Maine and other New England states. They serve as guides to residential heating energy usage, costs and emissions information and will be updated monthly as prices change.
The Maine report includes information and charts on average household usage and costs for different fuels based on home efficiency.
The report says the best way to bring down heating costs is through home weatherization that makes houses more energy-efficient.
