The Quinsigamond Village Community Center and nearby churches are currently facing financial stresses due to the escalating costs of operation and are looking for ways to reduce this burden. This project investigated methods of saving money for these churches by conducting audits of the buildings' energy usage and by exploring alternative energy sources. This research resulted in organization specific recommendations, including upgrades for lights, appliances, windows, and heating, for investing their resources to reduce overall energy expenditures.
