It's no coincidence that EFI is headquartered in Massachusetts as they have long been a leader in environmentally-friendly initiatives. The latest accolade to add to their sustainability resume is a commercial-scale offshore wind farm. This will be the first of its kind in the United States and is predicted to save Massachusetts residents around 1.4 billion dollars.
The 800 mega-watt project will lay fifteen miles south of Martha's Vineyard. While it is more costly than a traditional windfarm, the benefits of energy generation in the winter greatly outweigh the added costs. This pay off will account for a 0.1-1.5 percent decrease in monthly energy bills. Next to its clear economic benefit is the environmental-good that it will create. It is estimated that the equivalent of 325,000 cars, a whooping 1.6 million tons of carbon emissions, will be avoided each year by introducing this project.
The Vineyard Windfarm construction will begin in 2019 in hopes of being fully operational by 2021. It is the first of many offshore farms that Massachusetts expects to install. Their ambitious 2027 goal is to generate enough power from these projects to provide energy to over one million homes.
It looks like Massachusetts has made its mark on the clean energy industry and is not afraid to pioneer a road ahead for other states to follow. We are very proud to be based in an energy-conscious state that shares our mission while pushing the boundaries to protect our Earth.

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 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
