There are things we can do right now!


Right now, in our own neighborhoods, we can reduce our climate impact, improve our health, and save money by making changes in our daily lives.

Smart energy solutions for your home are easier and cheaper than ever before.

LED lightbulbs in your grocery aisle, energy-efficient heating and air-conditioning filters delivered straight to your doorstep, and "smart" thermostats are easy actions that add up to big savings -- especially with incentives like Charlottesville City Gas customers' $100 thermostat rebate. And did you know that the price of solar panels in Virginia has dropped by 55% in the last 5 years?

Residential Climate Pollution

Charlottesville needs every one of us to act.  As of 2011 households accounted for 19% of our climate pollution and that percentage is growing. The good news is that we have the tools to address it and that means that every climate action we take makes a difference.
