Massachusetts’ suburban homes are energy inefficient which creates a high demand for energy from fossil fuel power plants. These plants emit carbon dioxide, resulting in rises in surface and ocean temperatures and ocean acidification . Our goal is to inform homeowners of energy efficient practices and systems that can be incorporated into their daily lives to decrease carbon dioxide emissions and provide an economic benefit.
