A week ago today, Sunday, July 25, 2010, the Wood Streets Green Team organized a workshop entitled “Green Home Conversions with Riverside Public Utilities Rebates“. About 40 people (mostly Wood Streets residents) attended the workshop and heard Ryan Bullard from Riverside Public Utilities (RPU) explain the new Whole House Rebate Program, a tiered rebate that gets bigger the more environmentally friendly projects you perform.

Concerned residents who were able to attend the workshop were provided with an opening speech by Justin Scott-Coe, creator of the Wood Streets Green Team, who then introduced Ryan Bullard from RPU and Steven Rawls from REEIS (Residential Energy Efficiency Improvement Specialists). Those who attended were offered a free home diagnosis inspection from REEIS, and a free “Go Green” reusable shopping bag from RPU. Tara and I love these bags — we’re even looking into having some reusable shopping bags made for our business so we can give them away and encourage our neighbors and clients to help the environment by shopping responsibly.
Tara and I are proud to live in the Wood Streets neighborhood of Riverside, and are proud to be members of the Wood Streets Green Team! You don’t necessarily have to live in the Wood Streets to be a member of the Wood Streets Green Team. This site is a resource where all Riverside residents can share insights, ask questions, and request information about living more sustainably. Go Green, Go!
