Spring 2013 Newsletter: Energy Efficiency
In this newsletter, we are highlighting several Switzer Fellows who are taking this call to action to reduce energy use in their own lives - at work and at home - very seriously. Whether through new home design, "net-zero" co-housing or urban housing retrofits, Fellows are personally incorporating the values of sustainability for cost savings as well as serving as a role model and catalyst for others. Fellows are also working on local, state and national policy actions that can promote more responsible energy use, sending a message to markets, consumers and policymakers that energy efficiency makes economic and social sense.

This year, twenty new Fellows joined the Switzer Network of more than 500 Fellows located across the country and around the world.
