What You Can Do

To achieve Williamstown's greenhouse gas reduction goals and to do our part in combatting climate change will require action from as many people, businesses, and institutions as possible.

You can get started with twelve simple actions in your home to reduce your energy use, save money, and cut your emissions.

The COOL committee strongly urges everyone in Williamstown to change your lightbulbs from incandescent to compact fluorescent. Compact fluorescent bulbs use up to 75% less electricity than incandescent bulbs. Energy efficient lighting is such an important tool in reducting energy use and emissions that some cities and countries (such as Australia) are banning the inefficient incandescents.

Williamstown residents have the opportunity to sign up for green energy.
