Program Goals

As a nonprofit our agenda is simple: to reduce your energy use as cost effectively as possible.

Program Impact

Over the last ten years we’ve saved enough energy through our combined Energy Watch programs to take more than 56,459 homes off the grid.

Fewer Carbon Emissions
  • Helps small businesses, government agencies, schools, municipalities and homeowners use less energy and lessen their carbon footprint.
Healthier Communities
  • Creates healthier and more comfortable environments, especially for schools where lighting is brighter, whiter and puts off less heat.
Stronger Businesses
  • Helps municipalities save valuable energy dollars.
  • Provides more efficient systems and better lighting for schools and businesses.
  • We make it easy by managing the entire job for our clients, the audit, contractors, rebates, everything.

Program Reach

 

“As a nonprofit, it’s huge for us to be the beneficiary of such an amazing program. It’s not just the rebates, it’s the ongoing yearly savings that we can redistribute to our program funding.”

-Lauren Cohen, Executive Director, Monterey Youth Museum
