As one of the initiatives of the West Village Eco-D, we are aiming to find ways in reducing energy consumption and ultimately reducing the neighborhoods carbon footprint. This is an effort that we have been collaborating on for some time and are excited to launch today. As a way to start testing and moving forward, we are looking for volunteers to participate in our survey described below. If you would not like to participate in the survey or are unable to, we are looking for individuals to assist in the data process and collection.
