The NSTAR Energy Showroom of Innovation, or NESI, is visiting local communities to provide customers with an opportunity to view several cutting-edge products, including the latest in LED lighting, solar panels, compact wind turbines and miniature heat pumps.
Â“Our customers are very interested in information about the many energy efficiency and renewable energy options available to them,Â” said Penni Conner, NSTAR Vice President of Customer Care. Â“By driving our NESI trailer right to their neighborhoods, weÂ’re making it convenient to experience the latest technologies in a hands-on, educational setting.Â”
The NESI trailer is a 16-foot-long showroom on wheels that will be making stops at local schools, energy fairs, home shows and other community events throughout NSTARÂ’s service area. Using a whole-house approach to saving energy, NSTAR energy specialists display and describe several popular products that customers can consider for their own homes.
Along with the innovative technologies on display, the trailer will also demonstrate traditional energy efficiency standards like compact fluorescent lights and cellulose insulation. Compact fluorescent lights, available at most retailers, are competitively priced, use 75 percent less energy than ordinary incandescent bulbs and last up to 10 times longer. Cellulose insulation, made of recycled newspaper and denim, is an excellent alternative to traditional fiberglass insulation.
