Two Newton Restaurants Add Energy Efficiency

 Newton, MA –  Cabot’s Ice Cream & Restaurant and Blue Ribbon BBQ recently worked closely with Eversource to implement energy-efficient upgrades and lower their energy costs.

The Mass Save small business program begins with a free, no-obligation energy assessment conducted by an Eversource-authorized contractor. Business owners then receive a comprehensive proposal of all possible energy efficiency opportunities, the complete costs and estimated energy savings, along with available incentives and financing options.

Typical upgrade opportunities may include LED lighting, occupancy sensors, programmable thermostats, pipe and duct insulation, refrigeration controls and more.

Collectively, Cabot’s and Blue Ribbon BBQ are saving more than 94,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity and 1,900 therms of natural gas annually, resulting in 55 tons of CO2reduction – the equivalent to taking approximately 12 cars off the road or powering 13 homes for a year.
