What is ener-G-save?

ener-G-save is a philanthropically funded energy efficiency project in the Pioneer Valley and the Berkshires. It is the brainchild of Harold Grinspoon, a Springfield philanthropist who for more than 2 decades has supported varied educational initiatives, young entrepreneurs, and regional farmers. More on Harold Grinspoon and his work here.

Ener-G-save works with towns, grassroots organizations, other nonprofits, and schools to lower carbon pollution and help Pioneer Valley and Berkshire residents make smart energy choices. Through our community outreach program, people are encouraged to take full advantage of existing energy efficiency incentives to live more comfortably and affordably.

Our Cooler Communities school grants, piloted in 2019, leverage students’ curriculum work on energy and climate change to take a whole community on a path toward lower emissions and clean energy. We offer grants of up to $5000 to school districts for participating in, hosting, and attracting visitors to a community event that can lead to measurable reductions in energy use and carbon emissions. Cooler Communities projects strengthen young people’s leadership on energy and climate-related issues. Learn more here.
