Fellow Update: Amy Chavez
Amy has a BS in Conservation and Resource Studies from UC Berkeley, with a background in energy efficiency and sustainability programs. She joined CCBA as the Outreach Coordinator for Acterra's Green@Home program. Amy works with community members and volunteers from Palo Alto, Mountain View, Cupertino, and Sunnyvale to implement residential energy efficiency and water conservation programs.
Amy is currently leading outreach initiatives in Santa Clara County, including facilitation of community workshops, organization of volunteer events, and communication with city and neighborhood leaders. To further involve Acterra volunteers and board members, Amy recently developed a specialized Outreach Training to prepare participants to table for Earth Month.
Amy says, “the high tech, high touch aspects of Green@Home's programs are innovative because we combine the advantages of data analysis software with the benefits of personal assistance to maximize household energy savings. Although the program will continue after the end of my term, I hope I can help the Green@Home team confirm the value of this two-pronged approach.”
