Daily monitoring of over 20 web sites and 3 e-mail feeds to aggregate news stories on climate change.  Many of these web sites are themselves aggregations, so most climate change news stories appear here promptly and without repetition.  No more than 7 items per day are posted. Prepared by a member of Sustainable Arlington and the Climate Change Team at First Parish UU of Arlington.

Welcome to Sustainable Arlington

Sustainable Arlington acts on a local level to promote climate stabilization and other important environmental goals.  We are a Town of Arlington Vision 2020 Environment Committee and a chapter of the Massachusetts Climate Action Network.

Do you have ideas for ways that Arlington can reduce home and Town energy consumption, speed up the switch to renewables, and manage our environmental resources more sustainably? If you do, please come to one of our monthly meetings listed on this website.

Thanks for visiting.

SmarterHouse is the most complete and up-to-date guide available on energy savings in the home.

Following a review of measures to tighten up the building shell itself, the site focuses on the things you put in it your home—including major appliances, heating equipment, air conditioning, lighting, and electronics—and how the energy use of those products can be reduced.  If you’re about to buy a new appliance or heating system, you’ll be most interested in the tips on what to look for when buying new equipment. Otherwise, look for guidance on how to get the best energy performance through operation and maintenance of the products you already own. For further information and updates, we’ve included links directing you to valuable resources provided by the government, trade associations, and other sources.

 

 

SmarterHouse is a project of the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE (link is external)), a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization that acts as a catalyst to advance energy efficiency policies, programs, technologies, investments, and behaviors.

There's one room in your house that SmarterHouse can't help you make more efficient: the garage. For information on the most efficient vehicles, please visit our companion site, GreenerCars (link is external).
