Save on Energy Costs, Improve Home Value—4 FREE ENERGY EFFICIENT LIGHT BULBS WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU IF YOU ATTEND JUNE 6TH MEETING AT GREENBURGH TOWN HALL
If you own your home, you’re probably losing an average of $700 in energy annually. This loss affects your wallet, and in many cases, your comfort and health. For Greenburgh and the state, it also affects our sustainability and dependence on foreign resources.
To give homeowners the tools to become more energy efficient, the town is hosting Renew Greenburgh on Monday, June 6 at the Greenburgh Town Hall from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. You might think that energy efficiency is complicated. It’s not. It’s simply doing more with the same or less energy. For example, you could save at least $84 annually just by replacing incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent blubs (CFLs). Because lighting represents 12% of a home’s energy use, if every household did this, it would be hugely significant.
To get you started, each Greenburgh family attending the event will receive 4 CFLs—a $44 value that’s being provided free by Renew Greenburgh with support from NYSERDA.
We’ll also get you started on other upgrades by covering the state, federal and utility programs that are available. For example, under Green Jobs – Green New York, most homeowners can receive a free comprehensive home energy assessment. Using this data, and a range of super low-interest loans, cashback incentives and other financing, you’ll be able create an improvement plan that is right for you.
To pre-register for the event and light bulbs, go to www.RenewGreenburgh.org or call (866) 495-2959. To apply for the assessment, bring your ConEd account number OR past 12 months of bills. You can get this by using your ConEd account number at the following link: www.ConEd.com.
