Our goal is net zero!
Ways to Save
The typical American household spends nearly $2,500 annually on energy for the home. Most of us in New England pay even more because of our long winters and relatively high energy prices. Learn a variety of ways to change your carbon footprint though installing solar, implementing energy-saving measures, and altering transportation choices.
