Looking to Reduce your Energy Bills - Utility Rebates are Available

NHSaves has tools, incentives and tips that will help you save energy, money, and the environment with this Energy Star Program. 

The electric company is paying $3005 of a $5395 invoice to help us save at our home. The $2,290 cost to us has a payback period of 2.4 years.  

Without getting into a long drawn out explanation, Unitil, Liberty, NH Electric Coop, and Eversouce have programs that offers rebates on energy saving programs. 

They offer rebates for dryers to heating and cooling systems for your home along with adding insulation. The program starts with you filling out an application online at http://www.nhsaves.com/ or at your utilities website. Next step if you qualify and it is not income related but energy usage facts at your home.  Oil, wood, propane, and electric costs for the year.  

They set up an appointment to come out to your home to do an energy audit. I have had it done 2 times with 100% satisfaction. They go through the home looking for locations that energy would escape. Then set up a blower in your door that pulls air from the home and walk from room to room looking for drafts. We found some serious issues in the basement and the attic. The audit is $100 and at the end you decide if you want to have them help you save on your heating and cooling costs.  

Great program!

Dartmouth to Lead Study on Algae Blooms

Dartmouth to Lead Study on Algae Blooms also known at Blue Green Algae

Valley News Hanover NH 

Hanover — A Dartmouth College-led team of researchers wants to know why the Northeast’s lakes are experiencing more algae blooms, and what can be done to prevent them.

Over the next three years, the group of both earth and social scientists plan to use satellite images, drones and citizen volunteers to find out what’s changing in the region’s lakes.

“We’re at a critical stage where we can learn about what’s happening and hopefully do something about it,” said David Lutz, a research associate and lecturer at Dartmouth who is leading the team. “It’s too important to wait around on.”

Dartmouth scientists, along with those at the University of New Hampshire and New York-based Carry Institute of Ecosystem Studies, recently received a $1.47 million NASA grant to study water quality on about 2,000 lakes in New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine and New York.

Specifically, the team will try to answer why cyanobacteria, also known as blue-green algae, has become so prevalent throughout the Northeast.

 

Every summer, state biologists issue advisories at beaches warning of the bacterial blooms, which can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, mild fever, skin rashes, eye and nose irritations and general malaise, according to the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services. But it hasn’t always been that way.

“I think one of the questions that folks across the Northeast are asking right now is ‘Why are we seeing cyanobacteria blooms where we haven’t seen them in recent historical memory?’ ” said Kathryn Cottingham, chairwoman of Dartmouth’s department of biological sciences and member of the research team.

Although cyanobacteria is naturally occurring, blooms are commonly the result of excess nutrients in the water, she said. Large blooms, like those in Lake Erie, are linked to fertilizer applied near wetlands, which is then carried downstream into lakes.

“But here in the Northeast, we don’t have a lot of that agricultural activity that’s driving the changes in the lakes, so we have to look for other issues, other potential drivers,” said Cottingham in an interview last week.

Aside from potential health risks, Lutz said, the increase of could also be detrimental to recreational actives around the lakes, which are traditionally lined with second homes and forests in New Hampshire.

“These are very important locations in our state in terms of having lots of amenities, people coming to recreate and visit from out-of-state,” Lutz said. “Our lakes regions are a big part of our local and regional economies.”

To tackle the problem, Lutz and Cottingham are working with an interdisciplinary team that includes not only environmental scientists, but also demographers and drone operators.

The goal, they said, is to look at human-related sources of the cyanobacteria blooms, as well as the ecological.

“This is a very different way to do this kind of science and we’re really optimistic that we’ll get further than we can get with any of our individual approaches by themselves,” Cottingham said.

Work will primarily involve comparing historic satellite images from NASA with those from today, Lutz said. Access to those photos will give researchers the ability to see where water quality changes and in what context, he said.

“You can see blooms from space, you can detect generally how much activity there is in terms of plants and algae,” Lutz said.

The team also intends to monitor and fly drones over three “focal lakes:” Lake Sunapee in New Hampshire and lakes Auburn and Great Pond in Maine.

The lakes were chosen because each is the subject of active research, and Cottingham herself has participated in a long-term project on Sunapee. They’ll be used to test ideas and provide benchmarks for satellite findings,” Lutz said.

“It’s really nice when you’re doing work like this to have a known system that you understand what’s been going on and you can calibrate everything to,” he said.

The team began its work in August and expects to start drone work sometime in the spring, Lutz said. Initial findings will likely be released in a year, with work ongoing for all three years, he said.

New NH State Boating Law Effective January 1. 2017

This important piece of legislation in my opinion has not been well circulated to the boating community.  boat on lake winnipesaukee - lake winnipesaukee homes for sale

When transporting boats between water bodies: ( NH RSA 487: 16-D ) 

All fragments of vegetation and animals must be removed before leaving the launch area. 

All drain plugs must be removed or in the open position when leaving the boat launch

Invasive plants and animals can impair the quality and health of our lakes. Once an invasive plant or animal takes hold they are expensive to manage and nearly impossible to eradicate.

Clean: All mud - plants - debris from your boat, paddles, and motor with special attention to your anchor line and chain. 

Drain: motor - ballast tanks - live wells - open all drain plugs and leave open while motoring. 

Dry your boat and rinse with water prior to launching into another lake.
