Town buildings retrofitted; program available to residents too

New Energy Program

East Hampton Town buildings have been retrofitted with energy saving light and heating systems, all of which were covered under the South Fork Peak Savers incentive program. With this program’s assistance, all of these new building upgrades will not result in added costs to the town or its residents, and will likely cut down on the buildings’ energy costs.

Currently, more than 400 light fixtures and bulbs have been replaced in the town’s office spaces on 300 Pantigo Place and in the EMS technical services building. These lighting upgrades are expected to save roughly 40,000 kWh each year and thousands of dollars in utility costs.

East Hampton homes and businesses are also eligible for similar offers under this program. This can range from improved air conditioning and heating systems. The program even offers up to $950 in rebates for energy efficient pools. To sign-up, sign onto EnergizeEH.org.
