GOING GREEN IN BRAMBLETON - Brambleton Launches Energy Conservation Pilot and Recycling Rewards

The award-winning master-planned community of Brambleton, with its 2,000 plus residents, is again leading by example—this time in social responsibility. For their efforts in protecting the environment, residents of this southeastern Loudoun County community are being rewarded with more green in their wallets. Brambleton Group L.L.C., residential and retail developers of Brambleton, recently launched an Energy Conservation Pilot Program in association with Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative (NOVEC) and Carina Technology.

This smart grid technology accessed through the Internet will give residents an opportunity to identify ways to improve their energy management and provide a better understanding of home energy consumption and potential savings. Participants will receive real-time usage summary updates and will be able to determine if lifestyle adjustments are needed in order to create energy savings.


In another green initiative, the community’s new refuse company, AAA Recycling an
d Trash Removal, brought RecycleBank® to Brambleton residents last fall. RecycleBank is a rewards program that motivates households to recycle. The community’s recycling will be weighed weekly and points assigned to the community as a whole. Residents who have registered with RecycleBank will then be given an equal share of points on their account which can be redeemed towards coupons, gift cards or movie tickets at both national and local retailers.
