A trained two-person team of volunteers will come to your home for a scheduled 2.5 hour visit, at a time that’s mutually convenient. During the visit, the Green@Home team will offer you these energy-saving upgrades:

  • Provide and install a retractable clothesline.
  • Choose a place for three compact fluorescent light bulbs.
  • Optimize water heater and refrigerator temperatures.
  • Install faucet aerators and low flow showerheads.
  • Show you how to measure and adjust tire pressure.
  • Install up to 5 outlet or light switch gaskets.
  • Measure energy draw of home electronics.

Green@Home currently operates in the San Mateo County communities of Menlo Park and Redwood City. It also covers Santa Clara County: Cupertino, Palo Alto, and Sunnyvale
