The Energy Efficiency Ambassador program provides Illinois Green volunteers with opportunities to learn about smart meter-connected technology and related utility programs. Through training and by testing new technologies and energy efficiency programs in their homes, volunteers become experts and share what they learn with their community.

 

This year’s cohort of Energy Efficiency Ambassadors have been hard at work testing a variety of products that help save energy and money in their homes. Check out their reviews about some of those products below.
