The Alliance GAzette : December 2016

Naked Bullfrog Kickstarter
Naked Bullfrog Kickstarter Now Live! 

For awhile now, we've been harping on about a new platform we're developing that will enable us to expand our footprint of like-minded people and businesses across New England... and eventually the world (hopefully).   

In order to make this effort a success, we have launched a Kickstarter Campaign to help fund the technology and marketing efforts of the Naked Bullfrog. 

REST ASSURED, this new addition to the family will only help to bolster the mission of the Green Alliance, which will remain intact for those who love us just the way we are. 

So, keep an eye out in the next week, as you'll be receiving a message announcing the launch of the Kickstarter and how we hope you will support this effort.

"During a parent meeting earlier this fall, Becky made it clear that she wanted to develop a learning module," recalls long-time Acorn teacher Michelle Graziano, "around why we need protect our little friends, the pollinators, that play a critical role in our ecosystem."

Ultra Geothermal Co-Owner Melissa Aho
Capitalizing on Mother Nature's HVAC system

Without much fanfare, Ultra Geothermal of Barrington recently installed its 1,000th system and has become one of the top geothermal design and installer firms in all of New England.

Owned and run by the husband and wife team Darren Rice and Melissa Aho, the company's growth is reflective of a huge surge of interest in the residential renewable energy field. Before becoming Ultra Geothermal in 2007, the company had been a conventional HVAC heating and cooling company that also happened to install geothermal systems before shifting its mission to exclusively geothermal.
