When we think about addressing climate change, we may not think about the value of energy efficiency, but energy efficiency initiatives in buildings reduces energy consumption and fossil fuels and is one of the key ways to mitigate climate change in Connecticut.
Last week the MA Energy Efficiency Advisory Council* voted on the resolution for its 2022-2024 plan. The final resolution reiterates the Council’s priorities, including greenhouse emission reductions, investments in workforce development, and equity. Now, we need the Department of Public Utilities (DPU) to prioritize energy and climate justice and vote for an equitable energy efficiency program for our State.
You may have called upon the services of Mass Save. Free of charge, they will send someone out to your house and evaluate the efficiency of your home or business, replace your light bulbs with high efficiency LEDs and give recommendations on how to increase the efficiency of your home.
As a member of Clean Water Action’s CT Energy Network, I’ve had the opportunity to learn more about state programs on energy efficiency and renewables, connect with other energy task force leaders across the state and share best practices that we can help implement in our towns.
Together, we achieved our goal and sent a loud message to restore Energy Efficiency and Clean Energy Funds!
