Homes = Energy: What you can do as a Renter
When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM THURSDAY, JANUARY 12
Where: At The Center
Every day we make decisions in our homes that impact how much energy our buildings consume. Even as a renter, these choices can have drastic effects on our monthly energy bill. Often times, simple behavioral changes can have a significant impact on energy costs as well as the environment – it is just a matter of education and awareness. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and Con Edison are two organizations that have undertaken civic campaigns to educate the public on small changes that can make a big difference.
Recently NYSERDA, Con Edison, and Councilmember Brad Lander organized a competition engaging residents of District 39 on how much energy they used in comparison to their neighbors and to illustrate how much they could save through behavioral changes. This session will present the findings on choices competition participants made to save energy and money. Additionally, savings tips, from the extreme to the mundane, will be presented along with the realistic savings you can expect as a renter. They will present how much energy the average renter uses, what funding is currently available to renters and motivate us all to use less.
