Cool Winchester’s goal is to reduce the annual carbon footprint of 85% of the households in town by an average of 25% 
by 2020.
Cool Winchester helps the residential sector of our town become a model of energy efficiency and conservation.
Cool Winchester aims to inspire and assist other communities as we become a more healthy, resilient and sustainable town.
Cool Winchester recognizes that communities are interdependent and advocates our thoughtful and responsible interaction within the larger world.
Partners & Privacy
CoolWinchester has partnered with two energy assessment companies, Next Step Living and HomeWorks.  We share energy assessment leads from CoolWinchester publicity with both partners, so residents may be contacted by either one. In addition, we work with Sagewell, a company that has done thermal imaging of many homes in Winchester.
We at CoolWinchester are protective of the privacy of our fellow residents and will not share contact information without your permission.
Cool Winchester envisions our town as an energy efficient, environmentally healthy, connected and caring community with resilience to energy-related challenges, whether economic, political, social or environmental.
What Does CoolWin Do?
Organizes Eco Teams
145 Winchester households have completed the EcoTeam process.
These households have reduced their CO2 emissions by over 1.6 million pounds per year, equal to taking 135 cars off the road—permanently!

Facilitates Home Energy Assessments 
We’ve partnered with Boston-based energy efficiency leader Next Step Living and Winchester-based HomeWorks Energy to provide no-cost energy assessments (upgrades).
In 2011, over 150 home energy assessments were completed by our partner contractor organizations. Actions taken during and as a result of these assessments will provide further CO2 emissions reductions towards our town goals.
