Cooler Concord is a community program started in 2017 by the Comprehensive Sustainable Energy Committee (CSEC) to help Concord, Mass residents and others learn about and take advantage of energy conservation opportunities. By doing so we can save money and reduce harmful CO2 emissions. Many of the ideas behind Cooler Concord come from the book Cooler Smarter: Practical Steps for Low Carbon Living published by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) in 2012.
The Cooler Concord Fair held on February 4th 2017 at Concord Carlisle High School brought together around 1,000 residents and featured exhibits and workshops to highlight these ideas. The fair was supported by the Town, the Schools and the Municipal Light Plant.
