Supporting BIPOC climate careers through Google Nest Renew


Image of post in post detailed view

Dream.Org is a proud part of the Google Nest Renew Energy Impact Program - an initiative that allows US homeowners to use more renewable energy while supporting careers in climate and clean energy for BIPOC communities. If you live in the US and have a Google Nest thermostat, you can enroll in the program to support us while greening your energy consumption!
Across the US, energy grids contain a mix of renewable and fossil-based electricity, with one or the other being used more during different times of the day depending on availability. Through the use of “smart” energy systems, homes and offices can use more renewable energy and less fossil power by managing appliances. For example, Google Nest thermostats can increase or decrease their power usage to match the availability of renewable energy – using more energy when the grid is mostly renewable and less energy when it’s supplied via fossil fuels. Thanks to our partnership with the Nest Renew Energy Impact Program, this shift to renewable energy can also support scholarships to BIPOC Americans who are looking to grow their careers in climate or clean energy.
This is how it works: If you have a Nest thermostat you can enable Nest Renew features to use more renewable energy, increase energy efficiency, and more. Whenever you use Nest Renew features, you earn Leafs to track your positive impact and when you collect enough Leafs to reach a milestone, you can help direct Nest Renew funds to nonprofit partners including Dream.Org!

By choosing to donate your energy savings to Dream.Org, you can directly support our career training and scholarships for Black and Latinx communities that are most affected by the climate crisis. By providing our trainees and scholarship recipients with the resources they need to be successful in the green economy, we help diversify the workforce and boost the economy in these communities, making them more resilient to our worsening climate.

                It's great to see companies like Google supporting BIPOC individuals in the climate sector through initiatives like Google Nest Renew. By providing resources and opportunities for BIPOC individuals, we can help create a more diverse and inclusive workforce in the fight against climate change.
