Welcome to Sustainable Arlington

Sustainable Arlington acts on the local level to promote climate stabilization and other important environmental goals.  We are a Town of Arlington Environment Committee under Envision Arlington (formerly Vision 2020) and a chapter of the Massachusetts Climate Action Network.  See our yearly project statement in the Town of Arlington Annual Report, under Community Development and Planning, 

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

Thanks for visiting.

On our hottest days 

Shave the Peak

A Free New Way to Green the Grid

 from Mass Energy Consumers Alliance, a nonprofit organization

Shave the Peak empowers residential energy consumers to reduce energy demand on the most important days of the year. On peak days—usually the hottest or coldest days of the year—electricity demand soars, and the high electric demand is met by the most expensive, dirty fuels. Shave the Peak helps New Englanders take collective action to make an impact on our electric grid.

With Shave the Peak, you can receive text alerts on peak days, learn more about demand and the electrical grid, and support our advocacy efforts to clean up the New England power system.

How do you Shave the Peak in the summer?  Cut back on non-essential electricity use during peak electricity demand times.  Turn off lights, close window shades and curtains to keep out the heat and reduce the load on air conditioning, use less air conditioning, wait until later in the evening or even the next morning to run the washing machine, dryer, and dishwasher.
