An Amazing Box of Opportunity in 2 Minutes!

The “Power” of Change is what it’s all about in this cool video and in our partnership with ComEd through the Energy Force Program.

Two JJsList.com and No Boundaries self-advocates serve as volunteer ComEd Energy Force Ambassadors; they go out into the community and share tips with the public about ways to save energy at home.  Add to that, the Ambassadors work with our No Boundaries Trainer to build skills that are essential for the workplace, such as self- organizing, communications, technology  and time management.  It’s a win-win for all.

You’d think that would be enough, right?  Nope.  Through ComEd’s participation in Energy Star, ComEd is providing our our non-profit mothership organization, Search, Inc. additional pro bono help to modify light and electric fixtures in two of our offices to reduce energy consumption.  SO….

MODIFICATION  =  USE LESS ELECTRICITY  =  LOWER ENERGY COSTS =

MORE MONEY FOR OUR PROGRAMS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES….HOORAY!

What a partner!  ComEd created a SHORT video about their Energy Force program. The video features one of our ComEd ambassadors and describes how he and other members of the program are encouraging ComEd’s consumers to be more energy efficient.  Click the link below to see the video!
