It’ll be hot, but it’s time to get cool

By From page A8 | May 14, 2014

Visitors to Celebrate Davis! on Thursday can sign up with Cool Davis to be a Cool Home. Or, folks are welcome to join the ranks of Cool Davis volunteers involved in the Cool Homes outreach team.

Cool Davis is testing a new outreach survey and could use your help. This survey will be the tool the group uses to reach 5,000 new households in Davis this year, and will help organizers plan programs and discounts for households working to reduce their emissions and energy use.

Survey participants will get a chance to win a shopping bag full of Cool things, bike lights, veggie bags, a Cool Davis T-shirt, an art poster and a gift certificate to a local bike shop.

Visitors to the Cool Davis booth also will have a chance to talk with three local experts. Lynne Nittler from Yolano Climate Action will be on site to discuss oil trains coming through Davis and the recent City Council statement responding to the danger the trains pose.

In addition, John Walters and Chris Soderquist will be on hand to talk about community solar discounts and Clean Energy Yolo PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) Programs financing.
