Marc, Ward 3 Resident
One of our August random drawing winners, Marc from Ward 3, talks about taking the Reduce Energy Use DC pledge!
Why did you take the pledge to reduce energy use?
Climate Change is real problem that is affecting our everyday lives and I believe we all need to do our part to help reduce our carbon footprint, no matter how great or small.
Why is it important to reduce energy use?
The more energy we conserve, the less strain there is on the grid and it also helps to preserve other natural resources such as water.
How are you reducing your energy use?
I set my nest thermostat to eco-mode.
What are your favorite green spaces and green initiatives in DC?
I love Rock Creek Park and all the different hiking trails it has. I am a big fan of the work that the Clean Energy Leadership Institute (CELI) does. CELI equips young professionals with the skills and network needed to cross-functionally solve energy usage and policy issues.
Have you ever won anything before?
I won tickets to a Bowie Baysox Game when I was 10.
