Want to get started saving energy in your home now? Tenants do have the power to make some energy-saving changes to their homes including replacing incandescent and CFL light bulbs to LEDs, installing smart power strips, and installing low-flow faucet aerators and shower heads. And right now, Marin renters can receive all of those items plus an energy and water use consultation all at no-cost through the Rising Sun Center for Opportunity’s Green House Call program.
Rising Sun is a local nonprofit that hires local college and high school-aged youths to provide the no-cost Green House Call program to Bay Area residents. Marin renters and homeowners can participate by filling out a quick energy and water use survey. After completing the survey, residents will receive an energy saving kit in the mail, all at no cost.
Stay connected with the Sustainability Team via on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, the event webpage for workshops and community events and the quarterly newsletter. Contact the office via email with questions on our programs or to request more information.
