Our mission is to help our neighbors save energy and water and reduce their utility bills, by engaging volunteers, building community, and learning together.
The CWC is looking for energetic and dedicated volunteers to perform comprehensive energy tune-ups for households in need. Training will be provided.
Make a Difference: Improvements and educational tips made by our volunteer Energy Coaches can help save $250-$300/year on residents' utility bills while conserving water and energy.
CWC volunteer Energy Coaches learn how to:
- Teach energy and water-saving strategies to residents
- Fully inspect a home for potential efficient appliances, malfunctioning systems, and other opportunities for energy and water conservation
- Perform minor modifications to the home in order to lower utility usage, such as installing water-saving shower heads and LED light bulbs
Energy Coaches must be willing to:
- Complete a satisfactory background check before becoming certified
- Attend a 3-part Training Session
- Commit to at least six months as a volunteer, and perform at least 6 home energy tune-ups during that year (each tune-up lasts 2-4 hours)
