If you are ready to bargain, this might be for you. HEET (Home Energy Efficiency Team) was founded 10 years ago to reduce the gases that cause our cities to flood. We enjoy cutting carbon and we have found ways to reduce the energy used by buildings. Our latest endeavors have been finding and fixing methane leaks in the underground infrastructure of our cities and towns.
