OSSIGNING, N.Y. -- Ossining residents are being recognized by city officials for energizing their homes through a state program.
Town Supervisor Susanne Donnelly, Ossining Village Mayor Victoria Gearity, town board members and Green Ossining recently recognized 26 Ossining residents for making their homes more energy efficient and reducing energy waste.
The residents have acted to reduce energy use through the not-for-profit, Energize NY program - which assists homeowners through NYSERDA's Home Performance with Energy Star Program. The program helps homeowners with issues such as insufficient insulation, poor air sealing and outdated heating and cooling equipment.
Because of the upgrades, 117 Ossining homeowners are annually saving $198,900, said Lauren Brois, assistant director of the program.
"These numbers demonstrate that the upgrade process works and that individual action has a direct and obvious impact," she said.
Resident may sign up for the program by visiting energizeny.org or by call 914-302-7300.
