Northeastern helps boost neighborhood energy saving campaign


This summer Cambridge Energy Alliance (CAE) and NSTAR will be reaching out to Cambridge's small business community to promote energy efficiency measures and accompanied incentives. The Cambridge commercial canvass is made possible through a partnership with Northeastern University's Summer Discovery program, which is supplying six volunteers for the duration of the small commercial campaign. After several days of training, volunteers will visit Cambridge's small businesses establishments, and alert businesses of money-saving opportunities in their buildings.

Businesses that implement qualified energy efficiency improvements will be eligible to receive a window sticker certifying them as a Green Business Leader. Benefits incurred from energy efficiency improvements include: using less energy, saving money, catching up on deferred maintenance, and improving comfort and productivity of staff and customers.

The Cambridge Energy Alliance (CEA) is a community-based nonprofit organization sponsored by the City of Cambridge that helps residents and business owners invest in making their homes and buildings work smarter and more efficiently-saving energy, water and money.
