We are doing a project related to energy use and are looking for people who
live in Boulder, CO and are part of the Smart Grid City energy program
there. Does anyone have any ideas or tips on how to find people in this
pilot program?

We are on a limited budget and have posted on Craigslist in Boulder and have
asked all our friends, changed our status on various social networks to look
for people.

Any other thoughts on how to find these folks?

You could try getting in touch with the Smart Grid City program and
asking them if they can put you in contact with members of the pilot
program.

You could also try using a market research recruiter located in the
area. I haven't used these guys, but they seem like they could work: http://www.boulderfocuscenter.com/
. You'd just want to include a question in your screener about being a
part of the Smart Grid City energy program.

Or, maybe get physical? Put flyers in Boulder grocery stores? Set up a
booth on Pearl street mall?

Julie,

My wife works at the EPA. If the above routes are insufficient, feel
free to email me (jpyuda at pobox dot com) and I'll see if she can
help.
