Energy Federation Incorporated

EFI was incorporated May 25th, 1982 by six non-profit energy organizations with the purposes of helping those member groups and other organizations economically purchase quality conservation products and assisting the public in using energy resources efficiently. EFI's office was in downtown Framingham, Massachusetts, shared with the social service agency South Middlesex Opportunity Council. Inventory was stored in a small basement room. Initial customers consisted of EFI's member groups and low-income weatherization programs primarily funded with U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Weatherization Program Assistance (WAP) dollars. Bradley Steele, the Executive Director of People's Energy Resource Cooperative (PERC), one of the member organizations, was appointed President. In 1983 EFI organized its first successful coordinated bid for a state-funded weatherization program involving its six member organizations and another fifteen community action agencies, and EFI hired its first part-time employee, Janice Scoppa, in 1984. Other staff functions were performed on an in-kind basis by EFI Board members and PERC staff, including Philip Scarbro who joined PERC in 1986. Employees Bradley Steele, Janice Scoppa, and Philip Scarbro are all still with EFI today.
