What is ener-G-save?

ener-G-save is a philanthropically funded energy efficiency pilot project in the Pioneer Valley. 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 sees local energy conservation projects as an important lever to help people spend less on utilities, creating local jobs, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
