Are you a Building Operator or manager who is working on a short term energy efficiency upgrade or project that requires some specific tools? Maybe your budget is a little tighter than what you would like and you are having trouble coming up with all the right tools for the job? Maybe you are a homeowner who would love to install a new energy efficient light or thermostat but don’t have everything you need on hand. Enter your local Tool Lending Libray! These resources remove another barrier between an organization or a family and their energy efficient project. They also help encourage both commercial and residential customers to increase their sustainability while decreasing their carbon footprint.
