Portola Hills - Think Green

Portola Hills eNews!

Special Earth Day Information

It is hard to get away from the fact that tomorrow is Earth Day, so instead of sending everyone the normal Portola Activity I thought I would share with you some local resources to help keep our great area Green!

  • Southern California Edison – SCE offers many helpful tips to help consumers and businesses be energy wise and reduce energy cost. A few things you just might want to check out:
  • Got an extra refrigerator/freezer SCE will pick up and recycle your appliance and pay you for it. $35.00 for a refrig and $50.00 for a freezer and they will give you a $50.00 rebate when you purchase a new Energy Star appliance.
  • Money Savings Survey - Take the home energy survey to find out where in your home you could conserve and in fact save you some money.
  • Summer Discount Plans – I struggled with this one but made the commitment to have SCE control my air conditioning and save me up to $200.00 over the summer. We have great association amenities and can always just jump in the pool on those rare 100 degree days.

    Make sure to check out for all the details.

Other Green Ideas:

  • City of Lake Forest Tree Planting – For just $70.00 the city will plant a tree for you at a local park in memory of a loved one, event, etc.
  • Turn your old cell-phones in at Staples right down the street.
  • Check out to get rid of your junk mail and plant a tree. They will remove you from catalog and misc. junk mail list and each month plant a tree in your honor.
  • Check out – Type in 92679 and find all the ways you can locally recycle and find out what programs are in the area.

    My Green Commitment to the community, for each home you buy or sell with me in Portola Hills, I will donate a tree through the city program in your name for Concourse Park.

    Remember, It’s Possible!
