Energy Masters

Energy Masters, an award-winning program that promotes a more energy efficient and sustainable community, is now accepting community and student (age 16 or older) volunteer applications for the 2019-2020 training program, which begins October 3.

Our volunteers complete a training course on energy efficiency and water conservation techniques to equip them to deliver community education and outreach programs in affordable housing communities in Northern Virginia.

To date, more than 220 volunteers have been trained and performed thousands of hours of community service to improve energy efficiency in the homes of more than 950 families living in affordable housing in Arlington County and the City of Alexandria.

For more information about the Energy Masters program, including an overview of the program requirements and fall training dates, or to begin the application process, visit our website: https://www.ecoactionarlington.org/community-programs/energy-masters/. Also, we are hosting an informational happy hour on Thursday, July 25 from 6-8pm at O’Sullivans Irish Pub in Arlington. Join us to learn more about our program from current volunteers!

Apply before July 31 to receive a $25 early bird discount on the program fee! Application period will close on September 15, or earlier if the class has filled.
