Huntington, NY - August 16, 2017 - Suffolk County Legislator William R. Spencer, M.D. has partnered with Long Island Green Homes to offer two home energy presentations for residents in the Town of Huntington during the month of September. The presentations will provide information on how homeowners can receive a FREE energy audit which will specify the areas in their home where the most energy is being wasted and give clear guidance on how homeowners can fix the issues to save money on their bills, and make their home more energy efficient and comfortable year round.
 
“As the Suffolk County Legislator in the 18th Legislative District, protecting our environment while addressing affordability for residents continues to be of great importance to me. I am always looking for opportunities to bring available resources and programs to homeowners. That is why I’m so excited to work with Long Island Green Homes to provide this seminar.” stated Legislator Spencer. “I strongly encourage my constituents to take advantage of this free home energy audit as a way to lower heating and cooling bills. Participants will also help Long Island reach its renewable energy goals.  As a physician, it’s also encouraging to know that the energy audit will include a number of measures to ensure that your home is a safe and healthy environment."
 
 
On average, participants save up to $1,000 per year on heating, cooling, and electric bills. At the session there will be a PowerPoint presentation and a discussion about what takes place during an energy audit, common household problems, and the benefits of undertaking the audit. After the presentation, all attendees will have the opportunity to sign up for the free audit. 
 
The Long Island Green Homes Initiative is a non-profit collaborative partnership of Long Island Towns, community-based organizations and Molloy College funded primarily with a community outreach grant awarded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) in order to help residents improve their homes and use energy more wisely in their everyday lives. Through one-on-one support from an experienced Energy Navigator, homeowners are connected with government incentives they may qualify for and local certified contractors to help them maximize their savings on energy efficient improvements. In addition to reducing our carbon footprint and saving money, the Long Island Green Homes Initiative stimulates job growth and business opportunities—right here in Suffolk County.
 
The first session will be held on Tuesday, September 19th at 7:00pm at Asharoken Village Hall, 1 Asharoken Avenue. The second session will take place on Wednesday, September 27th at 7:00pm at American Legion Post 360, 1 Mill Dam Road, Huntington. Please see the flyer included below for more details.
