Community Conservation Corps
The Community Conservation Corps provides free home weatherization to low income homeowners in the greater Greenville community. We are a grant-funded program through the United Way of Greenville County’s Corps United Program, staffed by AmeriCorps members throughout the community with the mission of improving the financial stability throughout Greenville. The mission of the Community Conservation Corps is to reduce energy consumption and promote the financial stability of homeowners through weatherization, energy conservation, and education.
The Community Conservation Corps 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 experience and certified home energy auditors to determine a home's needs based upon an energy audit. Expert contractors will then perform whatever services a client's home may need, and provide them with the most relevant information for their household.
We estimate that through Home Weatherization we can provide residents savings of at least 30% on energy bills. The CCC partners with BPI certified contractors and auditors to provide whatever adjustments a client's home may need, such as added or new insulation around water heaters and in attics and crawlspaces, weather stripping, air-sealing, vapor barriers, safety checks on combustion appliances, and more all free of charge.
