Improve Your Energy Efficiency with FREE Green House Calls

In partnership with the City of San Leandro and PG&E, the California Youth Energy Services (CYES) Program will be serving San Leandro homeowners and renters this summer with FREE Green House Calls.  CYES, a program of the non-profit Rising Sun Energy Center, has hired and trained nine local San Leandro youth to provide free efficiency services to residents.

Green House Calls are energy efficiency retrofits performed by professionally-trained local youth Energy Specialists.  A team of Energy Specialists will visit your home and install CFL lightbulbs, bathroom and kitchen faucet aerators and efficient flow showerheads, as well as check your toilets for leaks and the insulation in your attic. This FREE service will help you save money on your energy and water bills while supporting local youth and sustainability efforts.

The program runs through August 11 and space is limited. Appointments for a FREE Green House Call can be made by calling 510-776-6370 or visiting

Rising Sun will be at the SL Downtown Farmers Market on August 10. Bring your old halogen floor lamp to our table at the Farmers Market at East 14th and Parrot Streets on Wednesday, August 10, and CYES will give you a new fluorescent version, of the same quality and brightness, for FREE!
