Help Greenburgh change the world one light at a time
Release Date: October 05, 2006

The Town of
Greenburghhas made a commitment to do our part to save energy and help protect our environment. With your help, we can do even more. Be part of our team and Pledge to make your next light one that’s earned the government’s ENERGY STAR® for excellence in energy efficiency.  The Pledge is a simple, but vital method of getting more people like you to commit to reducing greenhouse gases and saving energy resources, one light at a time.


ENERGY STAR® qualified bulbs and fixtures use one-third the energy of traditional models, last up to 10 times longer, and reduce utility costs. In fact, consumers can save up to $30 in utility costs over the lifetime of one bulb. Replacing the most frequently used lights at home will yield the most savings.


Our goal is to get at least 420 people to pledge to change at least one light at home. By reaching this goal we will be making a significant impact on our environment, reducing approximately 186,900 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions and a significant amount of energy. Since 420 pledges would represent just 2 ½ percent of the households in unincorporated Greenburgh, think what an impact we would have if everybody took the pledge!


We are encouraging both residents and Town employees to take the ENERGY STAR Change a Light Pledge today and help us reach our goal!  It’s a small step that’s already making a big difference.


Thank you for your support!
