While the emPower Central Coast program has come to an end there are great energy efficiency resources for residents, including a new program from the Tri-County Residential Energy Network (3C-REN) that will launch in late 2020 for Ventura County: Home Energy Savings. This new program offers free and discounted energy efficiency upgrades from more efficient lighting and showerheads to smart thermostats (and much more) to eligible homeowners and renters throughout San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. Learn more and apply to see if you are eligible at www.3C-REN.org.
