Community Campaign for
Clean Heating, Cooling, and
Energy Efficiency

PE08.12 - Clean Heating, Cooling, and Energy Efficiency Campaign

Community campaigns are an effective way to encourage adoption of new, innovative technologies to generate value and savings for consumers while simultaneously advancing a community's clean energy goals.

On November 9, 2022, the Columbia County Board of Supervisors adopted Resolution No. 492-2022, authorizing the launch of a Clean Heating, Cooling, and Energy Efficiency Campaign to promote the purchase of heat pumps and to increase the energy efficiency of residents' homes through the installation of additional insulation and energy efficient windows and doors.

The Task Force hosted an online public meeting on February 28th with some of the vendors involved with this campaign.

We've posted a video recording of this meting on YouTube.

The Columbia County CSC Task Force partnered with Heat Smart Capital Region on this meeting and will continue to do so with other aspects of this campaign. For more information see the links below.
