We’d like to take the opportunity this Earth Day to thank you for supporting CEWO! Because of your actions, we’ve been able to transform more than 1,400 homes, create more than 130 jobs and generate more than $15 million in economic development.
These are great numbers, but we’re also extremely excited about what this work has done, and continues to do, in reducing the amount of greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere. By making homes more energy efficient, homeowners are saving 1.8 million kWh of electricity and 391,000 therms of natural gas each year. These savings equate to 3,196 metric tons of CO2 equivalent, according to the EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator.
That’s equivalent to the CO2 emissions of 358,296 gallons of gasoline consumed or the carbon sequestered by 681 acres of pine or fir forest.
Thanks to your support, together we’ve been able to make a real difference for the planet. And the best part about it is that this difference will continue and grow year after year.
Have a great Earth Day!
