Albany Clean Energy Conservation Corps!

This fall, community members will participate in days of service to provide weatherization services, traveling to homes across the Capital Region to prepare them for the upcoming winter. The teams will provide free basic comfort measures such as installing weather stripping, door sweeps, and energy efficient light bulbs. All of our volunteers have undergone hands-on training by experienced professionals.

Weatherizing your home can save homeowners up to 25 to 40 percent on their heating and cooling bills. It is also a great way to bridge connections between community members and contirbute to the global mission of reducing energy consumption!
