Ashland Residents - Simple ways to take positive climate action


Be Ready for likely emergencies

  • Be Ready for anything! (http://ashlandcert.org)
    • Prepare an emergency kit make a plan for communicating with family and friends.
    • Set prearranged meeting points and know your escape routes.
    • Stay informed! During an emergency, timely information can save your life.
  • Sign up for emergency text messages (https://ashland.or.us/nixle)

Waste less, conserve more


Switch to low-carbon fuels

  • Walk and bike more
  • Consider an electric vehicle, or one less car (https://www.ashland.or.us/ev
  • Electrify home heating and cooling (http://ashland.or.us/conserve)  
    • Make a plan for higher-cost upgrades before you need them (don't wait until your hot water heater or furnace fails, now is the perfect time to plan for the future)


Support renewable energy

 

For Renters and Property Owners

Rental properties account for nearly half of Ashland's housing units. Renters often do not have the power to make significant building upgrades, and property owners often have little incentive to do so, or limited ability to recover the upgrade costs. In most cases, it is certainly worth having a conversation.

Renters and owners are all encouraged to make use of the energy assessment tools mentioned above. The online assessment only takes a few minutes, and the in-person energy review takes less than an hour. Both tools provide a good starting point for conversation. When both parties take an interest in climate and energy improvements, everyone can benefit.
