Green House Call Resident

Our Climate Careers program provides energy and water efficiency services, called Green House Calls, to households throughout the Greater Bay Area and San Joaquin County.

The best part? It won’t cost you anything. Really.

Due to COVID-19, Green House Calls are going contact-free. When you sign up for a Green House Call by completing a 10-minute online survey to determine your personalized efficiency needs, an energy and water efficiency kit with installation instructions will be delivered directly to your door. This kit will include:

  • LED light bulbs, standard and floodlight
  • A smart power strip ($70 value)
  • High-efficiency bathroom and kitchen faucet aerators (same pressure, less water)
  • High-efficiency showerhead(s) (same pressure, less water)
  • Toilet leak detection tablets

We’ll also send you information about energy-saving programs, including: 

After your kit arrives, we will conduct a brief phone follow up to ensure your installation process went smoothly and provide any necessary troubleshooting.

Green House Calls are available to homeowners as well as renters, barring only those who have received Rising Sun’s Green House Call service in the last five years and those who live in mobile homes. There is no income qualification.

Looking to have a kit delivered? Kits are limited, and require only that you either fill out this survey or call us to complete the survey by phone: (510) 665-1501 ext. 300


Here’s what will happen during your Green House Call:


Where are the best opportunities to save water and energy in your home? Our survey will help you look at windows and appliances to determine the right kit for you. The kit you receive will walk you through testing your toilet for leaks and other home water sources for efficiency.


Once your kit arrives, you will receive step-by-step instructions on how to install brand new equipment like LED light bulbs and high-efficiency showerheads to replace inefficient items as needed.
