Stay well, ener-G-savers

Hello ener-G-savers,

We here at ener-G-save want you to know that we’re thinking of you during these challenging times.  If you are in the medical or essential services fields, we thank you for serving our communities. If you have difficulties obtaining food, be sure to reach out to your town or city hall and your
elected officials to learn what assistance might be available to you.          

And if you have trouble paying your fuel bill right now, contact your Community Action Council under these links:
Berkshire CountyHampden County, Hampshire and Franklin County. They are ready to help. And the good people at Co-op Power and Common Good set up this resource to connect and exchange services and help.

In the Berkshires, where two of us live, volunteers, towns and food banks are setting up meal deliveries to those who need it and we hope you too are finding yourself supported and safe.

We’re all in new territory just now. We trust you’re staying safe, listening to our officials about the latest guidelines to help prevent the spread of this virus. We’ll take a deep breath, reach out to one another (virtually, of course!) and do what we need to do.

To close, we are sharing this image of how much the air cleared over China since this pandemic began. It reminds us that, in the complexities of life, we cannot always see the unintended consequences of what is occurring right in front of us, sometimes for the better.

We at ener-G-save send our wishes for your health and well-being during this time. 


All of us at ener-G-save

Landlord Workshops and Energy Audits are postponed

All the energy assessments we always tell you about are canceled at this time. So if you still need an audit, hang tight and be in touch down the road. Our workshops for landlords and outreach to churches have also been paused for now. As have the Cooler Communities school events that we had planned for April. BUT! See below how you can still participate in ener-G-save's Cooler Communities Ecochallenge in April.


A (virtual) Earth Day Celebration and Challenge for the whole family

April marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and we do not need to miss out on celebrating it!

Online resources allow us to participate by taking climate-friendly actions even now and not lose the momentum in our work to protect our own health and that of the earth.

Please join the Cooler Communities team, one of more than 200 teams (and counting!) participating in this environmental and social engagement program that starts on April 1st. If you are looking for an activity to do with your children, this program is very adaptable for all ages.

The Earth Day Ecochallenge helps you put your Earth Day intentions into action by providing you with the information, motivation, tools, and community to make a difference for our planet Earth.

You can start right now to select actions that work for you and your family and make a commitment to complete those actions throughout April. For every completed action, you earn points and create impact - visible for all participants to see.

Choose from this list of actions in categories such as Wildlife, Freshwater, Oceans, People, Food, Climate, and Forests. The Earth Day Ecochallenge kicks off on April 1. It is free to join and everyone is welcome!                             Simply sign up, then look for and join the Cooler Communities Team!  Together - you, your workplace, your school, your community - all our collective behavior connects us with a better shared future.
