Take Energy Savings One Step Further

The Citywide Green Team has put together a list of free resources to help you save energy and money at home. Find the one that’s best for you, set yourself a deadline and get going. We’d like to hear from you. 

Top five ways to take your energy savings home

Now that you are turning off your computer when not in use, it’s time to think about energy saving actions to take at home. The Citywide Green Team has put together a list of free resources to help you save energy and money at home:

  1. Take five minutes to complete an online Home Energy Review. Take Energy Trust of Oregon’s online survey and get a free home energy review in just a few minutes.
  2. Find a friend and spend an hour or two finding phantom energy loads at home. Turn energy savings into a ghost buster challenge at home by checking out a Kill-A-Watt tester from a Multnomah County library. It’s a DIY project that gives you the power to find and destroy phantom energy loads at home. 
  3. Take a Saturday to attend a Fix-It-Fair to learn simple ways to save money on home energy projects and much more.
  4. Make the call and get a free consult with a home advisor from Community Energy Project. As a non-profit, CEP Home Advisors offer an objective, unbiased approach to making your home upgrade the best that it can.
  5. For the ultimate DIYer, use this tool to create a very detailed energy audit of your home. Seattle has put together this comprehensive home energy audit kit.
