Carleton’s New Manager of Energy and Sustainability

Those interested in the new initiatives Carleton is making in the field of energy use and sustainability may be interested in this biography on Martha Larson.    She is a true professional, and I expect we’ll be hearing from her from time to time on energy issues that might apply to the older homes of our neighborhood.   Stay tuned,  and visit  https://apps.carleton.edu/community/news/?story_id=678891.      Ed
