Help us create a connected community of energy saving homes throughout the San Juan Islands
It’s a fun way to educate friends and neighbors on the importance of energy reduction. Become a green home leader for your community.
The San Juan Islands Conservation District would like to make your home a star!
If you’re planning on efficiency upgrades and would like to share the experience, let us know! We’d like to make a mini-documentary on your experiences to share with fellow islanders. You will be reimbursed for the expense of the Community Energy Challenge inspection ($195) or the OPALCO Snapshot assessment ($25) at the conclusion of the video documented process.
To get started
Fill out the Green Home Network sign up form here. Your home will be added to the Green Map to show you’re making the effort to save.
Schedule an energy audit.
Find the best savings opportunities and understand your home’s energy footprint.
For homes built before 1990 or so, we recommend the Community Energy Challenge program. This non-profit energy group will conduct a thorough top-to-bottom energy assessment of your home, including pressure testing and thermal camera inspection, utility incentive matching and project management to dramatically reduce the cost and hassle of home energy upgrades.
If your was built after 1990, building codes greatly improved and your best bet for finding low-hanging energy fruit is OPALCO’s Snapshot Assessment. A trained home energy inspector will look for easy energy savings and recommend the best options for upgrades. You’ll also get 12 FREE LED’s and low-flow showerheads installed!
