Our first week in Pleasanton has been fantastic! The four Energy Specialist (ESes) teams, the Pink Rats, the Ener-G Wizzards, the Green Pirates, and the Cunning Cheetahs are really coming into their own in the program. So far they have serviced over 50 homes and installed over 250 CFL light bulbs around the community. The ESes are doing an amazing job promoting the Lawrence Berkeley Lab National Lab energy metering project and Pleasanton is welcoming the meters with open arms. In only three days our site has installed “Watts Up” meters in 23 homes!
On July 11th, our Community Outreach Manager, Christina tackled the First Wednesday Street Fair downtown with the CYES mascot, Buddy. Come to the next First Wednesday Street Fair if you’d like to pet him for free! With everyone coming in and out for their Green House Calls, things can get a little hectic around the office but the ESes are staying diligent and keeping on their game. We’re all looking forward for the rest of the summer with CYES!
This week in Livermore it has been a pleasure to watch our Energy Specialists grow and improve in their roles. Our energy specialists have been learning a lot from each other, and it is great to see the returning energy specialists pass on their knowledge to the new members of our team. We had a full week of booked appointments, and even managed to squeeze in an outreach event at the Farmers’ Market. It was rewarding to see how professional our energy specialists were, using their well-practiced pitch and explaining the free Green House Calls. We got a long list of sign-ups at this event and look forward to all the homes we will be able to serve in the weeks to come.
