  • Calculating your Household carbon footprint impact
    • CoolClimate ‘freeware’ provides smart decision-making tools and programs to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy and is useful to all Groton residents.


      CoolClimate developed the first carbon footprint calculators to account for the greenhouse gas emissions of all transportation, energy, food, goods and services purchased by households. This comprehensive method, called "consumption-based greenhouse gas accounting," to estimate their complete carbon footprints, compare their results to similar users, and develop personalized climate action plans to reduce their contribution to climate change. Versions of these tools have been adopted by governments, businesses and non-governmental organizations throughout the United States and internationally.
