In our efforts to offset Global Warming, Green Decade´s Energy Committee educates residents, business people, and institutions about wise energy use, energy efficiency and renewable energy.

We educate the community about renewable energy and energy efficiency through designing, financing, installing, operating and troubleshooting demonstration projects.  We create models that enable and encourage other community groups to do similar projects.

Our Kyoto Project is a subcommittee. Please click below to learn more about all our Programs!

Kyoto Project 
The Kyoto project is now a citizen's watchdog group focused on quality control in weatherization projects, and better reporting of energy data in order to obtain measurable results supporting energy improvements such as insulation. The Kyoto Coordinator is seeking specific energy data from all Newton residents.
