I encourage Half Moon Bay Residents to come to this short workshop to learn more about these great rebates and incentives,” said Half Moon Bay Mayor Marina Fraser. “Everyone can do their part to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, and with these incentives it’s much easier to make those improvements which will save homeowners’ energy and money for years to come.”

Home Upgrade is an Energy Upgrade California program specifically for Bay Area homeowners and implemented by county governments. Through this program, homeowners have access to a free Home Upgrade Advisor service, can connect with specially-trained Participating Contractors, and receive cash rebates. Home Upgrade Advisors can provide direct one-on-one assistance to homeowners through every step of an upgrade. Upgrades can also add market value to a home.

Eligible improvements include air sealing; duct sealing; attic insulation; high-efficiency furnaces, cooling systems, and water systems; wall insulation; high efficiency windows; and others.

Homeowners may be eligible for rebates from $1,000 to $3,150 with an Energy Upgrade California Home Upgrade, and rebates from $1,000 to $6,500, plus a $300 home energy assessment rebate, with an Advanced Home Upgrade.

Rebates are offered for a limited time through the Bay Area Regional Energy Network (BayREN), a collaboration of public agencies representing all nine counties within the San Francisco Bay Area. Homeowners interested in getting started today can contact a Home Upgrade Advisor at (866) 878-6008 or visit www.BayAreaEnergyUpgrade.org

"National Night Out" is August 4, 2015 – Neighbors Encouraged to Hold Block Parties

 

$100 grants from the City will help with neighbors’ costs for putting on a block party 

Half Moon Bay, CA – National Night Out (https://natw.org) is the annual nationwide community-building campaign encouraging police/community partnerships and neighbor-to-neighbor connections, helping to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. The City of Half Moon Bay is encouraging local participation by inviting residents to hold block parties on Tuesday, August 4, 2015, and connect (or reconnect) with their neighbors. And, the City will help jump-start block parties by offering a $100 grant to help offset neighbors’ costs.

This small grant to participating neighborhood teams can be used to pay for food, beverages, decorations, rent tables and chairs, or whatever their block party needs, to be a success. Resident organizers just need to fill out a very short application, and deliver it in person to City Hall, 501 Main Street. Each neighborhood block party team must include two organizers, and a minimum of 8 homes participating on the block or street. The application, along with a quick guide to some Block Party Basics, is available online – it just needs to be printed, filled out, and returned in person to City Hall.

"National Night Out is a wonderful opportunity for Half Moon Bay residents to get together, meet new people and re-connect with neighbors, and just spend a couple of relaxing hours in an informal social setting," said Half Moon Bay City Manager Magda González. "Getting to know and staying in touch with neighbors enhances neighborhood safety and well-being, and makes it easier for neighbors to look out for each other – and all of that is good for our entire community." Depending on the number of block parties and availability, the City will also try to schedule a visit by a fire truck or Sheriff’s vehicle.

National Night Out helps build the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community, and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. Neighborhoods across the nation host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other various community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel and exhibits. Visit the National Night Out website at https://natw.org for more info about this nationwide effort.
