Miranda Cain is the founder of the North Preston group, and her goals in starting the organization were to harness the energy of youth, and to showcase the spirit and culture of the historic African Nova Scotian community. Clean Foundation, with the support of Nova Scotia Power, is offering honorariums to supplement the employment grants that Cain received, so more youth can help the community and promote HomeWarming.

A typical house can lose up to 80 percent of its heat through the walls, floors and roof. Upgrades like improving insulation and draft-proofing can help keep a home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. And since heating and cooling makes up around 60 percent of energy costs, reducing these bills can make other household expenses more manageable.
These upgrades can include insulation, energy efficient windows and doors, as well as high efficiency heat pumps and solar panels. A Home Energy Assessment determines what upgrades a home is eligible for. Residents will benefit from the Clean Energy Financing program by eliminating the large upfront cost of upgrades, and by spreading the payments over a period of 10 years, repayable through charges attached to their property which is why these types of programs area also known as Property Assessed Clean Energy PACE financing.
