"What a bright idea!” a Framingham, MA resident exclaimed as she accepted her complimentary LED light bulb from the EFI booth at the Framingham Earth Day event this past weekend. The sun was peeking out from behind the clouds and everyone was in high spirits as they stopped by to learn more about saving energy in their homes in honor of Earth Day.
April is a very significant month – the beginning signs of spring start to show in New England (April showers bring May flowers, after all!) and everyone gets excited for the warmer weather and sunshine of the summer. April is also significant because it contains one of EFI’s favorite holidays – Earth Day!
Every year, volunteers from EFI take part in some kind of Earth Day activity. In past years, our team has worked together to clean up litter in our local neighborhoods and this year, we decided to try something new.
This year, EFI signed up to have a booth at two local Earth Day Festivals (one in Framingham, MA and another in Natick, MA). In total, we handed out over nearly 900 LED light bulbs (donated to us by our partner, TCP Lighting) to the attendees to encourage them to make the switch from incandescent bulbs to LED bulbs in their homes.
The EFI Earth Day team did a great job spreading the news of energy efficiency to the local homeowners. Both events were greatly attended and though the weather could have been better (it has been a true rainy New England April!), the energy was high as families and residents of Framingham and Natick moved from booth to booth to learn how to honor our planet.
EFI’s tables at both events were popular – the residents of both towns seemed genuinely interested in how they could save energy (not to mention lower their utility bills!) and were excited about being able to bring home a couple LED bulbs to “make the switch.
It was also fantastic to hear just how many residents already knew of the fantastic Home Energy Audits that our partner, Mass Save, offers to homeowners. A surprising amount had either already had one done or had one scheduled! It’s so great to hear that our community is aware of the importance of saving energy.
Many thanks to the Town of Natick and Town of Framingham for hosting such great events and for allowing us to join in on the fun! We look forward to participating in more community events in the future!

We had just moved to our new home and really needed to shore up the heating system, figure out how we could afford new windows (they were original), and find out why our heat never stayed in the house. We worked with MassSave and EFI to assess our home, qualify for, and fulfill a heat loan. We were up and running with a new heating system, with a zero interest heat loan in about a week! This couldn't have been easier, and, to be honest, more needed. Thank you EFI and MassSave!Ryan D, Mass Save Marketplace Customer
We’re excited to partner with EFI! Using our existing programs, customers have saved millions of dollars in energy costs over the years. The PPL Marketplace certainly will add to those savings.Mary Ann M. Manager of PPL’s residential EE programs
We worked with EFI to create a product marketplace to offer our customer base an easy to use shopping portal. Our goal this year was to move 500K bulbs across all of our jurisdictions, and the EFI's marketplace and marketing expertise ensured that that number was hit by Q3. These guys know what they are doing, its just that simple.Ron S. Manager – Planning and Evaluation
I am always very happy with your service. I am proud that you want to help us save energy - I bought a ton of light bulbs. Thank you for being one of the few services I use that I can feel good about!Tracey Kitchens - Marketplace Customer
