SLO Green Build Helps Residents Live Green with the Green Retrofit Sweepstakes
 
San Luis Obispo- Living the American dream of owning a home is expensive. But your utility bills don’t need to be.  SLO Green Build invites residents of older homes in San Luis Obispo County to participate in its first ever Green Retrofit Sweepstakes sponsored by Pacific Gas and Electric Company. The sweepstakes entry deadline is June 15, 2009.
Fill out a free application at www.slogreenbuild.org to win $850 in services from SLO Green Build professionals and $500 on energy- and water-efficient improvements for your home.
This nonprofit organization is dedicated to helping residents save energy, save the Earth, and save their wallets to help further its vision of making every building a green building. By filling out this ten-question application, residents can win a lifetime of savings on utility bills.
Eight residents will win, one from each incorporated city in San Luis Obispo County and one from the unincorporated area of the county.
SLO Green Build’s Green Retrofit Sweepstakes is open to all homes in San Luis Obispo County that meet the following criteria:
1. The home must be a free-standing single-structure.
2. The home must have been constructed prior to 1990.
3. The home must have utility bills that exceed any one of the following:
a. Average PG&E bill of $200 per month
b. Average gas (natural gas or propane) bill of $100 per month
c. Average water bill of $100 per month
4. The home’s owner and/or tenant must have an interest in improving the home’s energy efficiency.
5. Tenants must have the building owner’s permission to implement home improvements.
 
Information on utility savings for each winner will be used in case studies and educational materials shared with the general public, building professionals, and local governments for the purpose of promoting green building on the Central Coast.
