On August 4th Governor Cuomo signed the “Power NY Act” which included a new financing option to repay loans to make home energy-efficient improvements. Homeowners will soon have the option to pay for energy-efficient improvements on their utility bills. The energy savings from the improvements will be available to offset the loan payments allowing more homeowners to qualify for loans! We will have more updates in future newsletters. Please watch for it and encourage your Cortlandt friends, family members and neighbors to sign up for the newsletter at RenewCortlandt.org website.

It’s not too early to think about replacing your home’s older gas fired heating equipment with today's high-efficiency technology. According to www.EnergyStar.gov, you could cut your heating costs by 30 percent and may qualify for a rebate of up to $1,000 from Con Edison or up to $560 from NYSEG.

We recommend you first take advantage of a free/cost-reduced home energy assessment offered by the Green Jobs Green New York program. This assessment will identify all the energy related cost savings opportunities in your home.

Visit RenewCortlandt.org and Learn more about how to take advantage of the rebates for installing high-efficiency natural gas equipment and Green Jobs Green New York free/cost-reduced home energy assessment.
