Green@Home Volunteer Training
Weekly Event - Every Thursday: 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM (PDT)
Palo Alto, CA
San Francisco, California

Important: Please buy 2 tickets, one for July 31st and one for August 7th. Full training requires attendance on both days. Each session is 4 hours, 5:30-9:30pm.
Acterra's Green@Home trains Volunteers to become Energy Experts and perform free energy-saving HouseCalls for residents in Cupertino, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, and Palo Alto. Trained volunteers provide energy assessments and install free energy-saving devices, such as:
· retractable clotheslines
· compact fluorescent light bulbs
· low-flow faucet aerators
· low-flow showerheads
Each HouseCall is approximately 2 hours long and volunteers work in pairs. We ask those who complete the training to volunteer for approximately two HouseCalls a month, with a minimum of 10 HouseCalls over the course of the year. You must be over 18 to participate.
Because some people want to take our training without making a volunteer commitment, we ask for a deposit of $30 from all trainees at the first training session to cover our costs. This materials fee will be refunded when a minimum of two HouseCalls is performed in the first two months following the training. (This time frame can be extended with reason.)
This training session will be:
Thursday, July 31 and Thursday, August 7, 5:30-9:30pm
Location details will be sent to registered participants a week prior to the training. We'll also let you know what to bring and send you a volunteer application to complete.
We look forward to working with you!
