Hope is Heat Pump

Reduce Carbon by 85 percent

Can your house of worship or non-profit achieve 85% reduction in carbon emissions? Temple Shir Tikva just did that! JCAN is excited to showcase their ground-breaking, up-to-the-moment story of transitioning to heat pumps. Your house of worship or non-profit could face a similar problem/opportunity: Lay leadership was confronted with a failing heating system. They sought advice. Top professionals engineered and installed the equipment. Could it be that simple? 

Come hear from the team who kept school and sanctuary in full operation while leaping towards climate neutrality: Richard Kaye, TST lead; Wes Stanhope, CEO of Building Evolution; and Jody Renouf, Director of Operations at GreenerU.

Shir tikva means song of hope, and right now, "Hope is Heat pump."
