Clean Energy Durham Neighborhood Energy Contagion

June 15, 2011 at 3:52 pm Leave a comment

The Northeast Central Durham (NECD) Community Outreach Specialists for Clean Energy Durham, Vicki Sneed and Iris Fisher, have NECD neighbors talking to one another about ways to save energy. Vicki and Iris have partnered with their NECD neighbors to host in home workshops and to host one-hour Basic Energy Education (BEE) workshops. The one-hour workshops were a big hit with the NECD community so Clean Energy Durham gave the workshops “premier billing” during the community outreach activities. Clean Energy Durham was very pleased to see that the workshops spiraled into a web of neighbors teaching neighbors.

Twenty-nine residents attended either a Clean Energy Durham hands-on workshop hosted by one of their neighbors or a Clean Energy Durham Basic Energy Education workshop. After attending a workshop, eight attendees were so excited about the energy information they learned at the workshop that they branched out and taught fifty-two of their neighbors about saving energy! And that’s not all! Four of these fifty-two people who were taught energy tips by their neighbors went on to teach at least one more neighbor! Clean Energy Durham is excited about this burst of neighborhood energy contagion, all within a six-month period!
