  • Radio Script: Comfort:60• Comfort means different things to different people. It could mean your home’s temperature. Are your comfortable right now? If your home is too hot or too cold, maybe it needs to be fixed. Here’s what to do. The California Center For Sustainable Energy can help increase your comfort and help you stay that way through the changing seasons. Find out more at sdreduceproduce.org. Reduce then Produce can help San Diego homeowners like you, by reviewing your energy use. They will help you find a contractor to assist to reduce your energy needs, which saves you money and improves your comfort. For example, if solar fits into your budget, there are money-saving upgrades and rebates. You’ll see how to reduce your energy usage up to one-third! You’ll get tax credits and your own solar PV system – and, you’ll be comfortable all year round. Visit SDReduceProduce.org by October 20th. That’s SDReduceProduce.org.
