California Youth Energy Services
The California Youth Energy Services (CYES) program offers skills development for local youth, free energy and water efficiency upgrades to residents, and greenhouse gas reductions for the community. Each summer since 2009, the City has contracted with Rising Sun Energy (an NGO) to operate this popular program in Fremont. Local youth between ages 15-22 are hired, trained in energy and water auditing, and then spend the summer securing clients and offering free audits. The youth also complete simple upgrades such as installation of low-flow showerheads and replacement of incandescent bulbs with fluorescent bulbs. Start year 2012
