The Cleveland Park Energy Co-op (CPEC) invites you to join us in helping make our Cleveland Park community more energy efficient and energy independent.

The CPEC is a group of individuals who have come together to educate our neighbors on renewable energy solutions, including solar and geothermal, and energy efficiency.  Our goal is to easily and affordably make our neighborhood a cleaner and greener place for all.

If you are interested in learning how you can make your home more energy efficient, please contact us or attend one of our events. We also have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities. So please contact us at: cpenergycoop@gmail.com.
