This comes from our friends at Sustainable Kensington Windsor Terrace...
There's Power in Community. At least that's our theory!
We all conserve more energy when we know our neighbors are making efforts to reduce their energy use and we have an idea of how much we are using as well as the average consumption of the people around us.
To test this theory, we invite you to compete in a neighborhood energy saving competition which will make it incredibly easy to track your energy use, compare it to how much you used last year and show you how you are doing compared to your neighbors.
Neighbors will compete to reduce their energy consumption and there will be winners in two categories – biggest loser and smallest footprint. We're piloting this experimental competition in Kensington & Windsor Terrace in Brooklyn and after we work out the kinks, we want to scale it up to the rest of the city (think about which neighborhood you want to challenge next!)
You are eligible to compete if you pay your own energy bill and have lived in the same place for at least 12 months. Coops and Condos are encouraged to enter!

Sustainable Kensington Windsor Terrace is a little group formed last year. We are all residents of Kensington or Windsor Terrace and our mission is: Building community through education and actions that reduce our environmental impact.
