Rethink Energy: Creating a Climate of Change

This regularly-scheduled sponsored column is written by the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy team (AIRE). This county program helps you make smart energy decisions that save you money and leaves a lighter footprint on the environment. This post focuses on the Greater Arlington Solar Co-op, currently open for Arlington and other Northern Virginia residents interested in purchasing solar at a discount.  Got a question?

The county’s commitment to address climate change is nothing short of a commitment to save money, do our part to leave a lighter footprint on the planet and care for Arlington’s future generations.

ARLnow previously reported on the county’s pledge to uphold the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. The Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy program helps our community make smart decisions about energy and supports individual actions that improve and sustain Arlington’s quality of life.

This year, the Rethink Energy team is celebrating 10 years of climate action. Over the past 10 years, this program has helped spur energy and money savings throughout the community, and the county government is now saving about $1 million a year from energy- and water-saving improvements in public facilities.

Big or small, every action makes a difference and we see Arlingtonians taking action every day. What can you do? Take advantage of these resources to reduce energy use and your carbon footprint, while saving a few bucks in the process:
