Our History of Energy Efficiency and Energy Conservation
In the 1980s, CSG field staff visited neighborhoods, observing New England homes after winter storms. “Nature’s thermal camera” revealed the evidence: a snow-free roof indicated that a house lacked insulation. Known as the Community Energy Partnership before incorporation as Conservation Services Group, CSG began an energy audit program for Boston Edison (now Eversource Energy) in 1984.
CSG conducts home energy assessments for utilities and energy efficiency organizations nationwide, saving more than 3,473,700 MBTUs on behalf of our clients in 2013 alone. We have helped more than 3.2 million people improve energy savings at home, and we aspire to reach millions more as we help build a clean energy economy.
Conservation Services Group has always been synonymous with energy efficiency and clean energy technologies. Since 1984, we’ve been promoting the benefits of energy efficiency for our clients, homeowners, and for the common good.
Led by Steve Cowell, who co-founded the organization, CSG serves a range of clients from utilities and public agencies to municipalities and communities. CSG’s philosophy is one of partnership with its clients. Since our inception, we have helped our clients receive recognition and win awards from leading national and international organizations.
