Clean electricity for your home is an important step toward clean energy for your community. Want to do more? Making your home more energy efficient can be valuable, not just to the environment, but also for your wallet, home health and safety, and overall comfort in your home.
Groundswell, a local non-profit, helps residents make group purchases for home energy upgrades through the Strong Homes Program. By organizing with community members, Groundswell facilitates a competitive bid with local, participating businesses to negotiate group discounts -- on average 15 percent - on home energy services, in addition to rebates and tax incentives.
Your community can achieve group discounts on energy efficiency measures by organizing the members of your non-profit, congregation, neighborhood, or school group to start a Strong Homes Group.
Also, you can join a large network of others who are investing in their homes, reducing their energy bills, and living in a more comfortable home-all at a discount. Take a few minutes to watch the Strong Homes Program video to hear from community leaders and residents who organized a group in their community.
Starting a Strong Homes Group with your community is easy. After getting in touch with Groundswell, you'll be on your way to...
- Planning a Strong Homes Program Energy Meeting.
- Inviting others in your community to join your Strong Homes Group.
- Taking advantage of group discounts, rebates and tax incentives on energy efficiency measures.
Will you start a Strong Homes Group in your community? Call or email Groundswell Field Organizer Peter Roquemore at 202-573-8361 or firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
