Hi there. My apologies for the slow response. I'm just back from vacation.

Menlo Spark is a small, independent nonprofit (501(c)3), aimed at helping Menlo Park become the first carbon neutral city by 2025 by working with businesses, residents, and city government.

Our website is:
We also have an online challenge aimed at sparking competition between residents and students on who can have the lowest carbon footprint:

Now that Menlo Park and all of San Mateo County are on track to receive carbon free power in the next five years, we're focused on transitioning fossil fuel use to clean electricity, working with other NGO, local government and business partners to demonstrate heat pumps and other alternatives to natural gas, accelerate and support EV deployment and create the first "Advanced Energy City" with partner groups to show how carbon free technology integrates across a community in an affordable way.

Thank you for your interest in Menlo Spark! Please follows on Facebook and Twitter: @MenloSpark2025
