Phoenix Houses of Los Angeles is Going Green!

With a generous leadership grant from The Ahmanson Foundation, Phoenix House is excited to announce the launch of our Going Green: Environmental Efficiency Upgrades project at our Phoenix House Academy of Los Angeles. After performing a professional energy audit, Phoenix House will incorporate new green technologies into our Los Angeles based facility.

The improvements and efficiency upgrades include:

  •  a rooftop solar energy system,
  •  upgraded climate control systems,
  •  new efficient lighting, and
  •  water savings measures.

Through these environmentally-friendly energy upgrades, Phoenix House will be able to re-direct hundreds of thousands of dollars each year from skyrocketing utilities prices into our life-changing Phoenix House programs while helping the environment by decreasing our carbon footprint.  In addition, by practicing good environmental stewardship, we also set an example and create teachable moments for the teens in our care at Phoenix House Academy of Los Angeles.

The multi-year initiative will be completed by the end of 2015. Program partners include The Ahmanson Foundation, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, Willdan Energy Solutions and California Sun Systems.
