A PERSONAL NOTE: Carbon Neutral Kent Woodland’s Task Force lost a lion this month: John Thomas passed away at 82. We will miss his fatherly advice, and how he always reminded us that experts say the goal has to be “better than zero”. He was clear-thinking, motivating, and wholly competent until the very end. His light will live on in the legacy he leaves behind, as we keep pushing the message to do what we can to reduce carbon in our neighborhood.
We wish each and every one of you a glorious holiday season! There are many good companies offering carbon off-sets – consider them if you fly over the holiday.
IT ALL STARTS WITH CLEAN ELECTRICITY: The heart of the CNKW project is to establish a baseline of neighborhood emissions for our 481 member households. This will serve as the basis for this project, to track measurable change over time. Our neighborhood “Annual Emissions Survey Results” will be published in January! Here is a preview…
Change starts with clean ELECTRICITY, and only 39% of Kent Woodlands survey respondents (based on 21% response rate) get their electricity from Marin Clean Energy (MCE).
By making the switch, you can help us reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and make a significant impact on our environment. MCE uses the PG&E electrical grid to distribute power, but unlike PG&E (who burns fossil fuels to generate electricity), Marin Clean Energy Deep Green provides electricity from a 100% sustainable energy source. The cost to change is less than $4/month more (based on the average monthly usage of 479kWh).
Email our Kent Woodlands Account Manager Sebastian Conn firstname.lastname@example.org to make the switch. This is the easiest thing all of us can do to take the first step towards a cleaner, greener future for our neighborhood! Let’s get 100% of Kent Woodlands residents signed up for renewable electricity!
TAKE A CLASS: Please join us for our second KW Resilient Neighborhoods Class. RN is an organization that teaches Marin residents how to lower their carbon emissions by adopting simple and sustainable practices. The five-session Climate Action Workshop is free and meets online. One January session starts on Jan. 10th (4 PM – 5:30 PM) and the other on Jan. 18th (6:30 PM – 8:00 PM). Each class meets every other week thereafter for five sessions. Earlier this month, our first KW class finished up with excellent results, with neighbors making bold commitments to effectuate energy-saving measures in their homes between now and 2030. To date, over 2,000 Marin residents have participated in RN’s class and have saved, or pledged to save, over 13 million pounds of carbon pollution.
