Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency reduces the amount of energy required to produce products and provide services. It is an easy and cost-effective way to slow climate change. Energy is wasted through transmission, heat loss, and inefficient technology every day, costing people money and increasing pollution. The cheapest, fastest, safest form of energy is to not use it in the first place.

Here are actions consumers can take to reduce their energy consumption:

  • re-insulating your house
  • using incandescent lightbulbs
  • installing more energy efficient windows
  • using less water to wash clothes

    Don’t you mean using LED lightbulbs in the second bullet under consumer actions?

    This is not the best we can do! Advocate for green Bank house modest amounts of public financing to attract 5-10 times as much PRIVATE financing, giving a GREAT BOOST to the " Divest-and-Invest for a Green Future " movement; creating thousands of new jobs, bringing together a diverse constituency with the finance industry and unions. We love Mass Save, but the goal is to drop energy need by 40% by 2030!! You cannot do that with a rebate program, you need a massive revolving loan fund. Examples can be explored in CT Green Bank; NY Green Bank; California CLEEN; HI; RI Infrastructure Bank. More info? New legislation will be introduced for 2017-18. Contact Rep Paul Mark.

    This program is kind of a bad joke does not return phone calls. I called the number in with my electric bill and they did not call back. so far they have not called back 3 or 4 times.
