Want to make your non-profit’s building more energy efficient?
Host an energy-upgrade work-party.
- First, contact HEET.
- HEET audits your building, then draws up an action plan and a list of necessary materials.
- You approve the work you want, pay for the materials, schedule the event, and recruit volunteers. HEET’s network can help provide additional volunteers.
- HEET coordinates the work-party on site at the scheduled date and time.
- HEET shares the highlights of the work-party through our website, newsletter, blog, etc.
- At the parties, HEET’s team leaders teach volunteers hands-on skills in energy efficiency, while we work together to make the building more efficient. Typical work items include decreasing the draftiness of a building and installing electricity- and water-saving measures.
- After the work is finished, we share food and celebrate!
HEET’s online survey showed over 70% of our volunteers use their new skills in their own homes.
Our upgrade parties:
- Teach energy efficiency skills.
- Reduce energy bills so your organization can spend on core services instead.
- Socially market stewarding the planet.
- Increase community engagement.
Your organization pays for the materials as well as food and drink: $500 on average.
The work is free, since it’s all provided by volunteers.
In a non-profit like a church, synagogue, or mosque, our work lowers the energy and water bills by $1,000 per year on average.
The work should last for 7 years, saving over $7,000 in all.
