Last week I was once again reminded of two of Clean Energy Durham’s core truths: (1) dedicated volunteers are at the heart of what we do, and (2) our volunteers are among Durham’s best people.
Two weeks ago we had planned to share our Basic Energy Education workshop at a Self-Help program in Southwest Central Durham. Our volunteer trainer from that neighborhood who was going to lead that workshop was called away on a family emergency the night before the event.
When I received the news the next morning, I was confident that we at Clean Energy Durham had other reliable and trained volunteers who could present the workshop. The question was whether anyone would be available and willing to fill in on 6 hours’ notice. All of our staff resources were previously committed that evening. I was delighted when the very first volunteers I asked, Sean and Sally of Northgate Park, gladly agreed to help us out.
By all accounts they did a fabulous job engaging the two dozen neighbors who attended the workshop. They taught basic ways to save energy in their homes and had some fun along the way. Thanks to Northgate Park for assembling such a committed group of volunteers who stepped in and effortlessly shared their knowledge with others.

We’re excited to announce that the City of Durham has selected five neighborhoods to participate in Phase II of the Neighborhood Energy Retrofit Program (NERP): Fisher Heights, Northgate Park, Trinity Park, Parkwood, and Morehead Hill/West End (these two neighborhoods applied together). The initial meeting for the neighborhood volunteers who will serve as the liaisons for their neighborhood was held this week. Liaisons learned more detailed information about the NERP program requirements, and CED staff reviewed program documents with the volunteers and answered neighborhood liaison questions. We’re excited to hear more ideas from volunteers on how to increase neighborhood involvement!
