Quantum Quote:” “It doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you don’t stop..” – Confucius

Do you want to reduce your heating and cooling costs – but aren’t sure how to afford the best options? Do you want to save money and help make a better world?

Whether you’re a gas or an electric residential, multifamily, small business, or commercial customer – National Grid’s clean heating programs can provide incentives to help you make your clean energy transition.

Today’s program is with Jennifer Cross. Jenny is a Senior Program Manager at National Grid for both their Heat Pump and Electric Products Programs. These two programs contribute to the success of National Grid’s building electrification and electric efficiency portfolios, with a goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. The NYS Clean Heat Statewide Heat Pump Program is also contributing towards state-wide carbon reduction goals by collaborating with the other NYS electric utilities and NYSERDA. 

Jennifer has 6 years of experience working on energy efficiency programs. She has a master’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning focused in Environmental Planning from the University at Albany, SUNY, and a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. It was during her Architecture years that she started becoming interested in the environment and clean energy as a whole.

SuperNova #1. I think it’s driving home the fact that geothermal heat pumps are highly effective. They make use of available heat that’s already stored within the earth. They use 25 to 50% less electricity to run when compared to conventional heating and cooling systems.

SuperNova #2. A great time to look into installing a new heat pump system is when your current heating and or cooling systems are coming to the end of their life, when you’re undergoing home renovations, or if you’re building new construction.

SuperNova #3. Geothermal is really taking existing heat that is stored on the ground. It’s working less to serve well.
