Stockton Energy Challenge looking for homeowners

STOCKTON, CA - The Stockton Energy Challenge continues to look for residents of a particular neighborhood who want to learn more about energy efficient homes and how to cut energy costs.

The effort is being sponsored by the State of California, PG&E, and local contractors like Green Home Solutions of Stockton.

Homeowners in Lincoln Village West, of Stockton, are being targeted in the campaign to get older homes more energy efficient.

"You're looking at attic insulation, duct sealing, air sealing," Green Home Solutions' Stephanie Rodriguez said. "Sometimes people need new heating and air units, because they're older."

Twenty-eight homeowners have signed on to the project so far, with future workshops scheduled to educate people who need more information.

Keeping it real with Alejandro Reyes

Last night I drove to Stockton to co-host our News10 Blog U event. It was small event of about 20 people but all were aspiring bloggers who were full of passion, energy and great ideas.

There was Manuel who was thinking of doing a DUI electrician blog, Anthony who plans of unveiling his street fashion blog soon, Kyle who writes the http://www.TheGirlKyle.com, Kamica who owns Baby Cakes & Co… and so on. Each person had a unique story – and you know I love hearing about stories and dreams.

But the person who pulled it all together was Alejandro Reyes.
