The Green Needham Collaborative brings together Needham residents, businesses, community groups, municipal governments and schools to build a sustainable community through collaborative efforts on energy and the environment. Green Needham Collaborative works with Next Step Living to connect residents to the Mass Save® program and other low-cost clean energy services.

You can take part in this town-wide effort to lower Needham's carbon footprint by completing your no-cost home energy assessment or solar assessment.

  • A combustion safety test to make sure that appliances such as heating systems, hot water heaters and stoves are operating safely and efficiently, without an excessive buildup of carbon monoxide
