By USGBCMA Communications, More Green Buildings!

Eversource, a Silver Sponsor of USGBC MA, has been working hard on their Sustainable Office Design (SOD) Program! This program provides high-performance lighting solutions to the leased commercial office market. Qualifying projects receive an incentive of $1 per square foot.

Eversource has already worked with ARC (Architectural Resources Cambridge) and Cimpress on improving facilities and reducing energy costs. As a result, the ARC office space will save 34,592 kWh (or 17 tons of CO2 emissions) every year, which is estimated to be about $5,189 annually. The Cimpress office space will save 399,540 kWh (or 196 tons of CO2 emissions) every year, which is estimated to be about $59,931 annually. Read the case studies here and here.
