Thanks for Saving Energy and the Environment!
While most people think of energy efficiency as a way to save money - and it is! - it also is an essential tool for a clean energy future. Every time you remember to save energy, you are also reducing the amount of pollution caused by energy from fossil fuels. That means you are making a difference to kids suffering from asthma and to those communities with polluting power plants or pipeline leaks in their neighborhoods.

The cheapest and easiest way to reduce energy pollution is to make our energy use as efficient as we can. We are in a transition time, replacing gas and oil with efficient electric heat (like minisplits), cooking (like induction stoves) and hot water (like heat pump water heaters). The electricity we use is being supplied by more and more solar and wind energy each year and will continue until almost all the energy you use comes from renewables! 

Looking for Volunteers to Talk with Neighbors about Saving Energy

With support from the City of Northampton, ener-G-save is partnering with volunteers from Climate Action Now and Mothers Out Front on a project called BUN 2.0 - Button Up Northampton 2.0. We are going door to door in neighborhoods that can most likely benefit from energy efficiency upgrades and incentives, signing people up for free energy assessments. CAN and Mothers Out Front want to avoid the building of new natural gas infrastructure by reducing gas use and promote energy efficiency in their town. If you would like to support this very worthwhile and concrete effort, please reach out to Marty Nathan martygjf@comcast.net

This project is part of a coalition that includes volunteers in other cities: Easthampton, Holyoke, Springfield, West Springfield and Longmeadow. If you would like to know what is planned in your community, contact info.ma.pioneervalley@mothersoutfront.org.

Satisfied Customers Saving on Energy Bills

“I loved the contractor, from American Installations, who did my energy assessment. He was helpful and gave great explanations. He blew in insulation, filled my bulk head with insulation, took thermal images, sealed all leaks upstairs, and more. My total out of pocket expenses were only $800, and I’ve already saved more than that this past winter.” - J. Truehart
 
"We have had a great experience with New England Green Homes. John and Tony  were true consultants— giving me real information, not upselling, giving me the facts and the science. They are rare consultants. Thank you so much! We can’t say enough about what a good job they have done." -  M.Clark

If we haven't reached you and referred you to one of the excellent contractors we work with, give us a call at 413-279-9141. You'll learn about the 75% discounts on insulation, free air sealing and rebates through your contractor. Call us to find out more.

Energy Tip for May

As we head into summer, it’s a good time to remember that not only does a well insulated home keep heat inside, it also stops cooled air from escaping throughout the hot summer months.

And there is another advantage to thinking about insulating your home during the spring and summer: contractors are less busy and the turn-around time for work is shorter. The incentives are still very attractive, so give us a call!

Stay in Touch

ener-G-save is a philanthropic service to match residents with contractors who are skilled in providing energy efficiency services and discounts. Our mission is to educate and motivate more people to use the energy efficiency programs offered by the utility companies. You already pay for these programs on your electric bill.

If we can answer any questions or help you in any way, please give us a call at 413-279-9141 or email ener-g-save@cooppower.coop. And tell your friends about ener-G-save!
