Energy Week Boston

Did you know that we are smack in the middle of Energy Week?!

Celebrate by being extra conservative this week: unplug electronics when not in use, read a book instead of watching tv, take cooler showers, use fans instead of AC, ride a bike instead of taking the T or a car.

And think about attending one of these upcoming Energy Week events:
