How does QuitCarbon Demonstrate Their Skills and Commitments?
- We’ve developed a special presentation for climate-focused non-profits, community groups, and similar organizations - which we’ve presented twice so far, to rave reviews! Our first presentation was recorded and shared by Climate Reality Bay Area.
- We won a Phase 1 prize in the US Department of Energy’s (DoE) Equitable and Affordable Solutions to Electrification (EAS-E) program - and are now collaborating closely with another one of the winners (Dayton Energy Collaborative, in Dayton, Ohio), plus numerous other non-profits across the USA, to bring affordable electrification and weatherization to their low-to-moderate income residents.
- QuitCarbon recently entered the DoE Buildings UP prize program with seven (!) different teams, all of them on the equity track. The proposals are all similar in that they'll utilize QuitCarbon's software platform and business process to make electrification more accessible and affordable for low-to-moderate income homeowners and small multifamily building owners.
- QuitCarbon continues to grow quickly - we are helping more than 1,000 homeowners, with over 400 homes having received our free Electrification Roadmaps, and those homes have started over 100 electrification upgrade projects via our contractor referral and bid benchmarking service (heat pump water heaters, HVAC heat pumps, EV chargers, induction stoves, and more).
- We recently implemented a unique program to help renters in small multifamily buildings work with their landlords to affordably electrify.
- We’ve presented a 20-min info session on home electrification to nearly 30 non-profit and community groups, to consistently glowing reviews!
- QuitCarbon has partnered with numerous non-profits, community groups, local governments, and others, including:
- QuitCarbon has received multiple validations for our unique approach, including:
How does QuitCarbon Partner with Non-Profits and Community Groups?
QuitCarbon works with numerous community groups and non-profits! We’ve done so in a variety of ways, and the Next Steps section below includes things we’ve learned about how best to get productive partnerships started.
The purpose of our partnerships typically include:
- Help more folks learn the truth about residential electrification retrofits - like:
- How electrifying is typically the single most impactful thing anyone can do to respond to the climate crisis.
- Home electrification can be surprisingly cheap! Rebates, incentives, tax credits, and lower utility bills mean that it is often cheaper to switch homes to electric appliances than to stick with gas!
- Electrified homes are healthier, more comfortable, more valuable, and more resilient to a changing climate.
- Electrification work is great for local contractors - and those local small businesses bring the benefits of electrifying back to the community through increased local employment.
