1 house at a time Event

Austin Green Energy Group teamed up with A Nurtured World's program, "1 house at a time," Volunteers from Applied Materials' Green Team and University of Texas' Liberal Arts Honors Student Council to make sustainable difference in a home in our community Saturday April 30, 2011.  This was the 5th "1 house at a time" energy efficency renovation for 2011.

Camarillo home successfully completed.

The event ended after about five laborious hours with one more Austin family more physically comfortable in their energy efficient home as well as having a more sustainable life.  All these activities will aid in making this Austin home more energy efficient and sustainable. 

These events are used to not only make homes more energy efficient and sustainable but also as an educational tool.  Each activity had an experienced leader to lead and teach the new volunteers.  It was a team effort that enabled the Austin Green Energy Group, A Nurtured World, Applied Materials' Green Team, University of Texas' Liberal Arts Honors Student Council, Pro Energy Consultants  and AtticDr.com to make a difference in our community...."1 house at a time."

This event was generously sponsored by Applied Materials Foundation, AtticDr.com, and Pro Energy Consultants.

You are invited to join us in making our community more energy efficient and sustainable.  If you would like to volunteer your services or resources for this type of fulfilling event, contact Austin Green Energy Group's Community Outreach Program Director at info@AustinGreenEnergyGroup.org This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
