Attention all SLO County homeowners, here is a great rebate and loan program to help you all save money on energy efficient upgrades to your home or business:
"The County of San Luis Obispo has teamed up with CoastHills Federal Credit Union to reduce the upfront cost of home energy upgrades. Single-family homeowners can access unsecured loans up to $25,000 with rates as low as 5.90%. We’ll also connect you with trained, licensed Participating Contractors and help you take advantage of high dollar utility rebates available through the Energy Upgrade California Program."
(Contact SLO County Planning and Building Department for more info)
Also, view this video from a great, local resource conservation activist who has come so far! We are so glad that conservation is becoming more prominent especially in education settings and we always look forward to giving conservation tips to our neighbors since no one should be a "hog" with our precious resources.
Note from Mr. Eco: January 21, 2011 was the date of the first music video I ever created. With a $100 budget, a video camera rented from the Cal Poly library and a cape made by a family friend, a superhero was born. To be honest, I wanted to be a rapper more than an activist. That has changed. Flash forward four years and you come to a very exciting moment. I've performed at 125 schools all up and down California reaching 65,000 children. My YouTube videos have been viewed 200,000+ times and the content (as you will see when you watch the video above) is constantly getting better. I sailed across the Atlantic ocean studying plastic pollution, I became an Al Gore Climate Reality Leader and have a new model that once executed, will reach millions and millions of kids through free assemblies given to schools by sidekick performers using Mr. Eco's content. I am pumped to be venturing out of California this spring to perform at schools in Texas, Georgia and New York to personally validate the assembly model. Thank you for your support over the past years!!
