We are thrilled to announce that our dear friend and colleague, Bill Kite, has been with us as the Director of MEPO Organization for an incredible 10 years! Bill has been instrumental in the growth and success of our organization, and we are so grateful for his hard work and dedication to MEPO.

As some of you may know, Bill has recently faced a health scare, but we are happy to report that he is on the road to a full recovery. Bill has decided to retire from MEPO and focus on his health. We wish him all the love and support during this time and hope to see him back in action soon.

We are pleased to introduce our new Director, Jerry Fairchild, who brings a fresh perspective and a wealth of experience to the table.

Low-GWP Refrigerants and New EPA regulations coming in 2025

The Environmental Protection Agency EPA has implemented new regulations on low-GWP global warming potential refrigerants, affecting the HVAC industry. The new rules require contractors to use refrigerants with a lower GWP in certain applications, and phase out the use of high-GWP refrigerants. This shift towards environmentally-friendly refrigerants can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect the environment. However, it also means that contractors will need to invest in new tools and equipment to handle the new refrigerants, and may experience higher costs as a result. New training and certification requirements might be needed to handle the new refrigerant. At the same time, the new regulations provide an opportunity for contractors to differentiate themselves by offering eco-friendly solutions to their clients. Stay ahead of the curve by staying informed and adapting to the new regulations.
