Free Energy Assessments Available

Students talk with homeowner about energy savings program

The City of Concord is proud to partner with Rising Sun Center for Opportunity to help Concord residents conserve resources, address economic inequality, and foster a sustainable world by working to address the triple bottom line - people, planet, and pathways. Local nonprofit Rising Sun does this by providing “earn-and-learn” opportunities for local youth ages 15-22 who provide no-cost Green House Calls to single-family residences throughout the community.

During one Green House Call appointment, a resident may receive, at no cost:

  • A home energy and water efficiency assessment;
  • Installation of efficient LED light bulbs, showerheads, and faucet aerators;
  • Installation of Advanced Power Strip* (approx. $50 value);
  • Toilet leak detection test; and
  • Information about BayREN’s (Bay Area Regional Energy Network) Home+ program that offers up to $5,000 in financial assistance and cash rebates for home energy improvements.

Residents are encouraged to sign up for a no-cost Green House Call and be part of a true win-win-win situation: a win for the youth who gain valuable work experience, a win for the resident who saves money, and a win for the environment which benefits from reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Appointments are available from July 2 through August 9, 2019. The program is eligible to single-family residences and two- to four-plexes.

To inquire about job opportunities or to sign up for a Green House Call, please call (510) 665-1501 ext. 300 or visit Rising Sun’s website at www.risingsunopp.org/programs/ghc.
