The August-September Yodeler has energy news for each Bay Chapter county—and for your own home.
The Sierra Club has launched a unique Solar Homes Campaign to bring solar panels to roofs all over America and benefit the Sierra Club’s important work. Based on a successful pilot program last year (the Bay Chapter was included), the new program encourages members all over California and five other states to check out the suitability of their roofs for solar panels. Participation is easy:
- go to www.SierraClub.org/solarhomes and fill out a no-obligation one-minute form;
- our project partner Sungevity will promptly evaluate your home for solar panels—options include no- or little-money-down leases— and you’ll start saving on your utility bills immediately;
- when you go ahead with installation, you will receive a $750 cash gift card, and Sungevity will pay the Sierra Club $750.
It’s a fantastic opportunity to put solar panels on your home at the best possible financial terms. Go now to www.SierraClub.org/solarhomes.
Your other most important home energy improvement is to eliminate energy waste. Energy Upgrade California enables every Californian to have a home energy audit to identify ways to save energy and money. See the August-September Yodeler, front page for details.
This Yodeler also brings energy news for every Bay Area county:
- the Chapter is working with the Oakland Climate Action Coalition to implement Oakland’s Energy and Climate Action Plan (page 3);
- San Francisco is close to approving a contract for Community Choice energy through CleanPowerSF (page 3);
- San Francisco’s GoSolarSF, which provides incentives for installation of solar power, is hanging in the balance (page 3);
- Marin Clean Energy, in two years of operations as the first Community Choice energy program in the U.S. dedicated to developing renewables, has made important progress towards local renewable energy—and has just added the city of Richmond (page 4).
