Welcome to HeatSmart Bethel

With the endorsement of the Bethel Board of Selectmen Bethel has partnered with PACE to launch the HeartSmart Bethel initiative.

HeatSmart Bethel is an education and outreach program to help residents:


Save money with a basic energy audit


Heat and cool your home on one system that can save money and is better for the environment


Support clean, renewable energy efforts and contribute to Bethel’s leadership in environmental stewardship and conservation

The Town of Bethel is working with PACE to bring residents this unique education opportunity. HeatSmart Bethel is designed to help residents better understand their home and the options available to them when it comes to heating and cooling. Bethel has already made strides towards energy efficiency and transitioning to renewables through the various projects of the Energy Conservation Committee. The HeatSmart program is another step in the journey.

Adult participants who attend this meeting (or any of the meetings of this 3-session program) will be entered into the drawing for a $100 Amazon gift card.
