When potential meets progress: A great photo of one the DCSEU's Workforce Development externs, Andre Roberson, on the roof today during our site visit. Working for Greenscape Environmental Services as a solar installer, Andre is assisting with the installation of Solar for All, a @DOEE_DC program.
In 2016, Joshua was driving for a rideshare company. After graduating from our Workforce Development Program, Joshua now works as an HVAC technician at a local hospital.
Great view from yesterday's site visit at @HorningBrothers Properties with New Columbia Solar. As a part of Solar for All, a @DOEE_DC program, the DCSEU is partnering with local contractors to design and install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at no cost to income-qualified District homeowners.
The DCSEU has been working with KIPP DC for several years to uncover opportunities to save on their energy costs when making upgrades on existing buildings and building new schools. From LED lighting and HVAC upgrades to comprehensive planning during construction, the operational savings begin to add up.
Today the DCSEU went on the roof of Savoy Court Apartments to view the progress of solar installation done by Flywheel Development LLC. Through Solar for All, a Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE) program, the families living in these condos will save money on their utility bills.
Did you know that ENERGY STAR-qualified lighting produces less heat when operating? That means it can help you save on air conditioning costs during the hot months in the District. Find LED lightbulbs as low as $0.95 at participating retailers.
Going solar saves money and reduces your carbon footprint. Through Solar for All, a @DOEE_DC program, the DCSEU is working with local solar contractors to design and install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at no cost to income-qualified District homeowners.
We are partnering with @dc_safe, a non-profit that supports domestic violence survivors, on a NEW #PowertoSaveLives fundraising campaign.
