Clean Air, Safe Communities, and a Livable Planet

Welcome! The [email protected] Program is a new benefit exclusively for union members, their family members and friends. The program empowers SEIU Local 99 members to be part of the climate solution. [email protected] can help you:

  • Reduce your gas and electric bills
  • Reduce your water bill
  • Get discounts on solar panels
  • Buy an affordable, clean-energy car

Participation in the [email protected] Program is a no-cost benefit for SEIU Local 99 members and anyone they refer. It is made possible through a grant from the Air Resources Board and in partnership with Grid Alternatives, the Liberty Hill Foundation, Greenlining Institute and others.

So what’s green about [email protected]?

The impact of man-made climate change is inching closer to our doorsteps, literally—rising sea levels, drier and hotter summers, less rainfall, and increasing air pollutants from burning fossil fuels and toxic chemicals ending up in our water supply that impact our health. The “Green” in [email protected] is all about reducing our carbon footprint in our homes and day-to-day lives, and doing it in a way that saves you money.
