All around you, investments are being made, savings are being captured, people are working, technology is evolving, and homes and workplaces are becoming more comfortable.

Under the Green Communities Act signed by Governor Patrick in 2008, Massachusetts’ electric and natural gas companies have committed to tripling their investments in energy efficiency between 2010 and 2012, in order to lock in savings of $6 billion for customers. Energy use in homes, businesses, and government buildings is being assessed. Leaks that let air out of buildings are being sealed. Insulation is being blown into walls and ceilings. High efficiency heating and cooling systems and appliances are replacing energy hogs.

ACEEE 2010 Scorecard

ACEEE 2010 Scorecard

Recently, Massachusetts has been recognized for its national leadership by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), which ranked Massachusetts as the second most energy efficient state in the country. Given that this ranking didn’t include current budgets and expected savings from the 2010-12 plan, Massachusetts has the inside track for #1 next year.

But national leadership isn’t as important as whether or not each individual, business, and municipality capitalizes on every opportunity to do more, while using less energy. That’s where the benefits lie – in managing your costs, maximizing your comfort, and becoming more energy independent. New Englanders are known for our practicality, and frugality, as well as our innovation. Help us keep Massachusetts abuzz. It’s easy; just visit MassSave.com and get into action.
