BLASDELL New York Assemblyman Sean Ryan and People United for Sustainable Housing will host a community forum regarding the PUSH Green Energy Efficiency Program on from 11 a.m. 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16 in the Blasdell Elementary cafeteria.
PUSH Green is a community-based, energy-efficiency program created by PUSH Buffalo and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. It is part of a statewide, stated effort to make homes comfortable and efficient, make communities sustainable, reduce energy burdens and create local jobs.
Attendees will be able to sign up for a free comprehensive home energy assessment, which gives a report about all energy upgrade needs and provides health and safety checks.
The assessments are free for homes with a household income of $132,200 or less. Attendees will be able to meet with a PUSH Green community energy advocate and learn how to make their homes more energy efficient. Those attending the forum are asked to bring a recent copy of their energy bill with them.
Ryan said, The free home energy assessment will help people to identify necessary upgrades, and the PUSH Green program will provide information on ways homeowners can pay for these upgrades. I thank PUSH Buffalo for partnering with New York state, to create this great program that will help to improve homes in Erie County and create greener communities.
PUSH Green Program Manager Kate Howard said, Anyone who is interested in saving money on their utility bills, learning about energy efficiency or how to weatherize their home should attend this event ... to hear what PUSH Green is doing.
