From 2008 through 2012, MaineHousing operated the Carbon Quantification Project (CQP). The CQP was a pilot project to build and test the tools required to sell carbon offsets from home energy efficiency upgrades. The pilot project was completed successfully and resulted in the creation of two tools:
- The methodology for “Weatherization of Single Family and Multi-Family Buildings V 1.1”. The ID number for this methodology is VM0008. This tool is available for download from the Verified Carbon Standard website at http://v-c-s.org/methodologies/find.
- Download the guidebook “Financing Residential Energy Efficiency with Carbon Offsets.” Download the Financial Calculator that complements the Guide.
