Success Story

Kilojolts Consulting Group Helps Cambridge Savings Bank Cut Energy Use by 20%

Cambridge Savings Bank is among the largest community banks in Massachusetts. Founded in 1834, the company has close to $2 billion in assets, and offers a wide range of products and services to personal, small business, and commercial banking customers

Cambridge Savings Bank (CSB) wanted to reduce its overall use of energy for both financial and environmental reasons. Management wanted to mitigate the impact of rising energy costs on its profitability while reinforcing the bank's commitment to environmental stewardship. With headquarters in Cambridge , MA —one of the country's most progressive and environmentally aware communities—CSB was acutely aware that its customers and stakeholders cared about conservation.
