SNEW Success at the Blue Goose

For the Sierra Nevada Energy Watch team, it's not a job well done until all the energy efficiency upgrades have been installed and the customer is happy.

Karen Ritland and I, both Project Assistants and Climate Corps Fellows, went out to the Blue Goose Event Center in Loomis this month to make sure that was the case.

Changing and Growing in the Town of Truckee

If there is one thing we can count on, it is change.

I have been in the Truckee/North Lake Tahoe area for over 30 years and have seen Truckee change from a small town with a population of about 4,400 residents to one now with well over 16,000.

Tourism has increased dramatically as well.
