Community Conservation Corps

The Community Conservation Corps provides free home weatherization to low income homeowners in the greater Greenville community. Funded by grants from Piedmont Natural Gas, we partner with Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County to promote efficient, safe home building and homeowner education. The mission of the Community Conservation Corps (CCC) is to reduce energy consumption and promote the financial stability of homeowners through weatherization, energy conservation, and education.

The CCC strives to provide our clients with significant monetary savings on their home energy bills through free home weatherization, and to educate the community about the importance and advantages of energy conservation. To ensure a positive and professional experience for our clients, the CCC uses experienced and certified home energy auditors to determine each home's energy use and diagnose areas that need improvement. Expert contractors will then perform whatever services a client's home may need and provide the client with the most relevant information for their household.

The CCC partners with BPI (Building Performance Institute) certified contractors and auditors to provide all necessary adjustments and home repairs, completely free of charge. Some of our services include additional or new insulation around water heaters and in attics and crawlspaces, weather stripping, air-sealing, vapor barriers, safety checks on combustion appliances, and more. We estimate that by providing these and other home weatherization services, we can help our clients save up to 35% on their home energy bills.
