In teaming up with the Town of Berwick for the Clean Energy Financing Program, our goal is to help residents of the Town save money by reducing energy costs, while saving the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and overall ecological footprint.

We feel fortunate to have participated in The Berwick Clean Energy Program. The process was clear, easy, expedient and very affordable. We appreciated the prompt direction and communication from Equilibrium Engineering Inc, the Town of Berwick, and White Rock Mechanical Services, all of whom made having our heat pump installed a positive experience.
Highly recommend this program!
