Home Energy & Water Evaluation Backpacks

Green Team Project is proud to be in partnership with the Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA) and area public libraries on the JEA Do-it-Yourself Home Energy and Water Evaluation Backpack Kit Program.

The Home Energy & Water Evaluation Backpack Kit can show you how to make your home more comfortable and lower your monthly utility costs. It's fun, easy to use, and available for checkout free of charge to anyone with a Public Library Card in Jacksonville, Nassau County, and the Bartram Trail and Ponte Vedra locations of St. Johns County.

Everything you need is in the kit, including: 

  • A step-by-step audit guide and worksheets to perform the evaluations 
  • An infrared thermometer  
  • 3 Kill A Watt™ meters  
  • A Hygro-Thermometer to measure temperature and humidity
  • 5 Catch Cans to test your irrigation system’s efficiency
  • A CD full of JEA's energy and water fact sheets 
  • A water flow bag
  • A drip gauge- helps calculate the cost of a leak
  • Consumer Reports’ Complete Guide to Reducing Energy Costs
  • Ortho’s All About Sprinklers & Drip Systems
  • And more!

Workshops are regularly held throughout the Jacksonville Public Library system, Nassau County Public Library System and at two locations in St. Johns County- the Bartram Trail Branch or Ponte Vedra Beach Branch. 

These free one-hour workshops will teach you and your family how to use the kits to perform your own home energy and water audit.  Using the library as a learning laboratory, we train participants how to use the included tools and discuss methods to make their homes more efficient.

Access Backpack How To Videos and a full workshop that includes an American Sign Language Interpreter.
