– Supervisor Paul Feiner announced the launch of www.RenewGreenburgh.org, a one-stop resource to help Greenburgh residents and businesses lower energy use and utility bills. The website provides connections to rebates and incentives, educational resources, tips to manage energy consumption, finding local contractors, and helpful interactive tools. Renew Greenburgh also highlights Town projects and provides coverage of Town news and events related to energy conservation. Allegra Dengler, energy conservation coordinator for the town and Dobbs Ferry resident Nina Orville (who works with Blue Springs Energy) will make a formal presentation to the Town Board and the community at the Greenburgh Town Board meeting on Wednesday, February 9th at 7:30 PM. "We encourage residents to take a look at our website before the 9th and to provide us with feedback."
“The Town of Greenburgh has been active in its efforts to improve its environmental performance and energy efficiency. RenewGreenburgh.org supports this approach by giving our community easy access to a website, e-newsletter, and Ask the Expert resources to help our residents, businesses, and not-for-profit organizations save money on their utility bills.” said Supervisor Feiner.
RenewGreenburgh.org is developed through a partnership with Blue Springs Energy; a company that assists organizations, local governments and individuals to access clean and renewable energy grants, incentives and credits and find local green services and products.
“Blue Springs Energy is proud to support the Town of Greenburgh’s efforts to help its community save money on their energy bills and help the environment,” said Larry Simpson, President of Blue Springs Energy. “There are numerous clean energy grants and incentives available from Federal, State, and Utility sources, but most are difficult to find and access. The RenewGreenburgh website and newsletter provides useful information so that residents and businesses can take action.
RenewGreenburgh.org highlights Town-wide energy efficient initiatives including solar panels on Town Hall, geothermal at the library and a grant from the US Department of Energy (DOE) to analyze energy savings from LED streetlights in the Town. Greenburgh was the first community in the region to hire a part time energy conservation coordinator. Allegra Dengler is the current coordinator.
A monthly newsletter will also be available to residents who wish to provide their email addresses on the RenewGreenburgh.org website. The newsletter will provide information relating to clean energy grants and incentives, as well as ongoing projects and tips on how to become more energy efficient.
