Cville Homes are Taking Climate Action Personally!

Climate change is complex and seems insurmountable. Do the changes we make actually make a difference? The answer is, “Yes, they do!” — especially when we take action together.

What is the Home Energy Challenge?

The Home Energy Challenge is a fun, informative, and practical way to reduce our collective carbon footprint! It makes climate action personal, measurable, and tangible — showing us the impact of actions such as potential cost savings, climate emissions reductions, and the progress we make together, as a community.


We’re Rocking This Challenge!

How do I start?

Season One is wrapping up (ending in February 2019) and recruitment for Season Two is in full force! We are currently scheduling Power Parties for Season Two of the Home Energy Challenge.

Ready to take the lead?

Volunteer to host a Power Party and be a Team Lead (email claire@cvilleclimate.org to get started)!

What’s involved?

  • Host or attend a house “Power Party” with friends

  • Fill out your Energy Profile

  • Start taking action — solo or with a team

  • Make a difference and celebrate!


What’s a Power Party?

We want to use the power of our social networks to create positive change, so C3 is teaming up with households, neighborhoods, and community groups to conduct "Power Parties."

These house parties are a great way to connect with friends and support each other in reaching a common goal. The Power Party host typically assumes the role of Team Lead, although in rare cases one individual will host a party and another member of the team will take on the role of Team Lead. Email claire@cvilleclimate.org to learn more.
