Eversource, energy provider for New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, has partnered with the City of Boston to complete 42 projects in 25 of the Boston Public Library’s (BPL) locations since 2009. This has generated over 1.6 million in annual kWh savings for the BPL and an estimated 27 percent reduction in electrical energy consumption. In addition to these impressive changes the aesthetics of the renovated Central Library, especially the Children’s Library, have been greatly improved. Since its opening earlier this year, over 10,000 children have participated in library programs and even more visit just to read and use the space.
Eversource is also a proud participant in the Green Apple Day of Service Mini-Grant Program. The program allows them to sponsor local schools to accomplish a project such as a recycling assembly, garden planting, waste free lunch, clutter cleanout, etc.
Their sponsored projects will be taking place in the upcoming weeks. We will share these projects on the blog as they take place. Thank you Eversource for your continuing support in the Green Building sector and your commitment to the communities that you serve.
