I had the distinct privilege of tagging along with two green jobs corps fellows on their green house calls a couple weeks ago.

Several times a week, Oaklanders Ken Carradine and Nekeyra Wells fill their backpacks with compact florescent light bulbs and grab their clipboards to venture through the city performing green house calls. The team conducts free energy evaluations and retrofits as part of a new job training program that started in February. If needed, they are equipped to install CFLs, low-flow showerheads, clotheslines, aerators, and other green-home measures.
