Efficiency Maine initiative to boost recovery of Maine’s hospitality industry


AUGUSTA —Maine’s hospitality sector is being invited to upgrade heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, LED lighting and refrigeration equipment. For a limited-time, Efficiency Maine is offering enhanced financial incentives to accelerate conversions to high-efficiency equipment in the hospitality industry, as well as assist businesses as they gear up for this year’s tourist season and beyond.

This initiative, which will also reduce carbon emissions from the hospitality industry, falls under Efficiency Maine’s Commercial and Industrial Prescriptive Program.

“As Maine embarks on a new, hopeful tourist season there’s no better time for the proprietors and managers of our restaurants and places of lodging to consider upgrading the systems that will help make their establishments more comfortable, attractive, and energy efficient,” said Rick Meinking, senior program manager for commercial initiatives at Efficiency Maine. “Whether it’s improving an air conditioning system, installing high-efficiency lighting, or upgrading refrigeration equipment, these incentives aim to bolster success in Maine’s hospitality sector.”
