New series of eco-friendly programs

Environmental organization eMERGE Guelph is offering a series of new services aimed at helping people find ways to save energy and reduce their environmental footprint.
The first of these services, which are labelled “Pathways services,” is the one-hour Efficient Home Visit. The visit, which comes with a free retrofit package, offers on-site expert advice on how to save energy and reduce waste.
“Our goal is to remove barriers to help you access knowledge and inspiration and to motivate you into action,” an eMERGE news release said.
The organization has also teamed up with ReMax to conduct home visits for people selling their homes, so they can show potential home buyers that the home has been checked for environmental efficiency.
To book a visit as a ReMax client, contact Sarah Steenhoek at
The second service, offered in collaboration with Transition Guelph, is called Transition Streets and is aimed at bringing neighbours together to learn how to save money, reduce environmental footprints and create long-term environmental and social change.
Those interested in learning more about this service are asked to contact Sarah Steeves at
The third service, Project Neutral, looks at retrofits on a neighbourhood scale. Through this service, people can complete an online household survey to determine their environmental footprint and see how it compares with their neighbourhood.
This service will be launched in Guelph in September, and eMERGE is currently choosing four neighbourhoods that it will be working with on the project. To learn more or to find out if your neighbourhood will be involved, contact Steve Yessie at
