As we continue to go out into the community to share the energy savings experience, we thought we’d share some of our own personal stories, too, by introducing you to our summer team members, Kelly, Pedro, and Kim. Each joined the All In Energy team this summer to help bring energy efficiency programs to Boston communities and begin to build a platform to diversify the clean energy workforce. Their stories are below, but they are only part of the bigger picture, so comment below to share your stories or tell us about your home energy savings with the hashtag #Codman$aves! We would love to get to know you better, too. (To hear from our co-founders click here)

You have just stumbled across our first post ever! Very exciting.
Who is All In Energy?, you might ask. We are a non-profit organization with a mission to accelerate an inclusive transition to a clean energy economy.
What does that even mean? Basically, it means that we are all in on helping to build an economy that is both energy efficient and powered by renewable energy in a way that benefits everyone. We’re working to make sure everyone has access to government and utility energy efficiency and renewable energy incentives so that all families can take action to improve the comfort, affordability, and sustainability of their homes. (Click here for the research behind our work)
It’s a big task, so we’re starting right at home, connecting underserved communities of Boston (historically communities with high rates of renters, low-to-moderate income households, people who speak languages other than English, and people of color) to energy efficiency programs that save families money and increase the comfort of their homes. As they reduce energy use, these programs also cut carbon emissions which helps to slow climate change. (More about a no-cost home energy assessment)
Moving forward, we will be launching a training program to bring residents from the same communities that we serve into clean energy careers, growing a multiracial, multilingual workforce that better represents and better serves our state. (More about our mission)
Thus, we accelerate the transition to an inclusive clean energy economy.
