Environmental Sustainability and Energy Efficiency

Buellton Green Scene - Save Energy

Welcome to the City of Buellton’s Green Scene

The Buellton Green Scene website has been created to provide information and resources to our residents and business community in Buellton!

The City of Buellton is committed to provide leadership in environmental sustainability. We understand the rural and natural beauty that is within and surrounds the City.

We hope that this site will help promote citywide resource conservation and efficiency. By identifying and gathering various Green standards and incentives that may be offered and are available to our community. Visit our Sustainable Landscaping page for helpful tips and updated information on the Green Gardener Program.

We encourage everyone to visit this page regularly as it will be constantly updated with information. Tell us your  about your Your Energy Saving  Project on the City & Community page so that it is shared!

Take a look at our Community Calendar and see local upcoming events,. 

Our goal is to create a foundation in which the desire to implement sustainability efforts can thrive.
