Event Details

Weatherize now! Will you be one of the 500 Bostonians to sign up to save energy, money, and the planet on June 1st?


The Boston 500: Challenge to Save Energy is a citywide Day of Action on June 1st! We aim to ensure that ALL BOSTONIANS have access to energy efficiency services that will help save energy, money, and the planet! Boston landlords, renters, property owners, and members of small condo associations are encouraged to join in the fun!


RSVP today

to attend an event in your area! RSVP in the "ticket information" box above, and you'll be prompted to choose one of many great events to attend (listed below).


At each event, you'll find people just like yourself whose homes or communities have benefited from a no-cost home energy assessment through Mayor Menino's Renew Boston program. You'll also have the opportunity to sign up for a no-cost home energy assessment in order to take steps toward weatherizing your own home.

If 500 Boston households to sign up to take steps towards weatherizing their homes, the impact will be incredible:

  • We'll prevent 224 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions
  • We'll collectively save $50,000
  • We'll prevent noxious emissions that cause asthma
  • We'll create green jobs
