“The CYES program is a great program for both educating the community about energy conservation and giving young adults an opportunity for leadership – win-win!”
“I was very impressed with the knowledge and help from the youth. They were thorough in explaining everything. I highly recommend this program to everyone.”

Our California Youth Energy Services program provides energy and water efficiency services, called Green House Calls, to households throughout our service area.
The best part? It won’t cost you anything. Really.
When you sign up for a Green House Call, we’ll send two trained youth Energy Specialists to your home to check for resource conservation opportunities, install new equipment to help you save energy, water, and money, and give you personalized recommendations for even more savings.
Space is limited for our summer program, so call today, (510) 665-1501 ex 5, or sign up here. We’ll sign you up for an appointment, or put you on our waitlist.
We ask for feedback from every customer we serve
