NO-COST Energy and Water Upgrades for Residents of City of Martinez

For the third year in a row, Rising Sun Energy Center’s California Youth Energy Services (CYES) program will provide Martinez residents with no-cost energy and water conservation services through a partnership with Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), the City of Martinez, and local water districts.

Since 2000, Rising Sun has provided no-cost energy and water conservation services to over 33,700 residents throughout the Bay Area and Central Valley. Last year, CYES provided services 248 residents in the City of Martinez alone. CYES provides local jobs for local youth by training and employing young adults ages 15 to 22 as Energy Specialists, providing their community’s residents with Green House Calls (GHC).

At each Green House Call, Energy Specialists:

 *   perform an energy- and water-efficiency assessment,
 *   install energy-efficient light bulbs,
 *   install water-efficient devices for showers, faucets, and toilets,
 *   perform a toilet leak detection test,
 *   perform a basic solar assessment,
 *   provide a smart power strip,
 *   provide e-waste pick-up and disposal,
 *   offer tips on energy and water conservation to save money on utility bills, and
 *   give an energy-conscious gift from Rising Sun Energy Center

—all at no cost to residents.

CYES provides services to all community members regardless of income with a focus on serving hard-to-reach residents, including renters, low-to-moderate income households, seniors, and non-English speaking households. The program helps cities reach their Climate Action Plan targets and do their part to address California’s drought.

Our clients rave about their Green House Calls:

“I thought I was doing pretty good with energy but learned there are still ways to improve. Most of the information I received was easy and cheap to implement. I just hadn't known about it before. Thanks Rising Sun!”

“The two youth represented your organization in the most professional manner. They were courteous and respectful. They were very knowledgeable and answered all questions we had.”

Reserve your spot now. Contact us today and start saving on your energy and water bills!

Green House Calls will begin July 6 and run through August 11, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
