Arcata Green Team on the scene!

The Arcata Green Team is comprised of students in the Engr370 Energy, Technology and Society class at Humboldt State University. The goal of the first ever Green Team was to provide the City of Arcata with informational/inspirational videos and webpages on home energy use and retrofits. The Spring 2011 Arcata Green Team focused on energy retrofits, for renters, that pay themselves back during the time of a one year lease. The Arcata Green Team is very proud to present the pages below and the Phantom Menace video.
