With the help and support of our community, the City of Bellingham is developing and implementing strategies to reduce the impact of government and community activities on our climate. This is necessary in order to create a healthy, vibrant, safe and equitable home for current and future generations, as promised in Bellingham’s Legacies and Strategic Commitments.
The Community Energy Challenge, a non-profit partnership between Opportunity Council and Sustainable Connections, provides energy audits, reporting, consultations, quality assurance, and financial incentives for homes and businesses in our community. Their services help reduce energy costs, improve comfort, and increase value.
Why Pump it up?
Our local utilities are working hard to make all electricity in our region carbon neutral by 2045. That means when you switch to electric appliances your carbon footprint will decrease over time and you’re playing a role in fighting climate change!
Better Air Quality
Natural gas combustion appliances reduce indoor air quality and the methane in natural gas is a major driver of climate change. Heat pump water heaters are better for your home, your family, and the planet.
$1000 in Rebates!
We will help you access a $500 rebate from Puget Sound Energy, a $300 federal tax credit, and an exclusive $200 rebate for City of Bellingham residents switching from natural gas to heat pump water heaters. That could cover $1000 off any costs to switch!
