Mass Energy Consumers Alliance, a Boston-based nonprofit organization, is excited to be part of USGBC’s Building Tech Forum on February 16th. Our mission to make energy more affordable and sustainable manifests in two major ways: 1—we influence individuals to take action around energy use in their own homes through a variety of “group-buying” programs. We encourage them to take advantage of the most practical new energy technologies. And 2—we use the lessons learned and momentum of their participation (“membership”) to influence policymakers. Our deep connection to consumer energy needs is why we’re so excited to bring our voice to this conversation on Smart Cities.
Though we offer many programs, our most groundbreaking are shared here. First, our “green electricity” or green power program makes it possible for Massachusetts and Rhode Island electricity customers “make the switch” – in other words, to choose local renewable energy for the electricity they consume. Members of the green electricity program pay a couple extra cents per kilowatt-hour they use in order to match their electricity use with energy from New England sources (like the wind turbine in Lynn, MA—pictured!). You can learn more about our renewable energy program, see a map of all of our renewable sources, and sign up at: www.massenergy.org/green
Mass Energy is also currently running an electric vehicle group-buy discount program, Drive Green with Mass Energy! Anyone can take advantage of big discounts we’ve negotiated for purchase or lease of the Chevy Volt and Bolt, Nissan LEAF, Ford Fusion Energi, Ford C-Max Energi, and Kia eSoul. And Drive Green with Mass Energy discounts are in addition to the state MOR-EV rebate of up to $2,500 and the federal tax credit of up to $7,500. To learn more about how electric vehicles are a great choice for consumers and the environment or to sign up for a test-drive, visit: www.massenergy.org/drivegreen!
We look forward to seeing you at Thursday’s event!
