Tri-Shore Hubs Host Informative Heat Pump Webinar

The Sustainable Jersey Hubs of Atlantic-Cape May, Monmouth and Ocean counties hosted an informative webinar on November 9, 2020 entitled: Reducing Carbon Emissions for Heating and Cooling with Heat Pumps. This was the first collaborative event of the hubs in the Jersey Shore region. Pat Miller of the Monmouth Sustainability Hub moderated the presentation; she opened the event saying, "We hope after this session, you never buy another air conditioner again. You'll buy a heat pump instead." The virtual event focused on the benefits of using heat pumps in both homes and businesses to improve heating and cooling efficiency while reducing carbon emissions. Speakers included industry experts, current users, installers and sustainability professionals such as Steve Miller (Monmouth Sustainability Hub and the Middletown Green Team), Hap Haven (New Jersey's Clean Energy Program), David Hoh (Home Comfort and Energy Experts), Paul Rinear (Aberdeen Green Team), Phyllis Gar (Monmouth Hub and the Marlboro Green Team) and Nate Adams (Energy Smart Home Program). Hap Haven discussed some of the incentive programs available from New Jersey's Clean Energy Program and noted that the cold climate air source heat pump is the most efficient heat pump and perfect for New Jersey's climate. He concluded the session with a call to action: "Let's move New Jersey into the future." Learn more: Watch the Webinar: Reducing Carbon Emissions for Heating and Cooling with Heat Pumps.
