Interested in learning more about DC programs that provide financial assistance for home energy efficiency upgrades?

Are you and your neighbors familiar with the resources provided by the DC Sustainable Energy Utility?

Join us for an exciting presentation on how you can make your home more energy efficient. By improving energy efficiency, we can save money, save on energy resources, make our home environments more comfortable and, on a larger scale, help to reduce carbon emissions in our region.

League of Conservation Voters "LCV invites comments to Secretary of State Kerry oppsoing the Keystone XL Pipeline, citing a recent tar sand "oil" spill

Imagine coming home to this: Oil oozing down your driveway, pooling in your back yard, and filling up your local waterways. Sounds like a nightmare, right?

This is the reality that families in Mayflower, Arkansas, have had to deal with since more than 500,000 gallons of dirty tar sands oil and water spilled out of a ruptured Exxon Mobil pipeline this past Friday.

This spill is terrible and our hearts go out to the community in Mayflower affected by this disaster. This shouldn’t have happened. That’s why it’s critical that President Obama and Secretary Kerry reject the construction of a much bigger pipeline, Keystone XL, which could cause even more devastating spills of tar sands crude in waterways and lands across America.
