"Green" House Fest: a tour of energy efficient and renewable features in Brookline

See the elements of a “green” home up close; talk with Brookline homeowners who have lived with and benefited from energy efficient features such as solar panels, air source and ground source heat pumps, electric cars, on-demand gas or electric water heaters, induction stoves (with 2 cooking parties), insulation and home energy use monitors and learn about incentive programs available in Massachusetts for heat pumps, solar, and electric cars.
