Power Up Your Home With PowerUp Communities

Powerup Communities event at Long Beach City Hall Monday, March 10, 2014 from 6-8 PM.

PowerUp Communities Event

Learn how you can save energy, save money and increase the comfort and value of your home.

PowerUp Communities will be speaking about the benefits of energy efficiency improvements, the process, the rebates and financing available, as well as the specific benefits that come with being a PowerUp Communities homeowner, such as an additional 5% discount. Representatives will be there to answer any questions and to help interested homeowners get started in the process.

PowerUp Communities connect homeowners with government funds, one-on-one support and certified contractors, in receiving energy-saving home improvements. In addition to cutting waste, reducing our carbon footprint and saving people money, PowerUp Communities sparks job and business opportunities-right here in our neighborhoods. The LIPCs PowerUp Communities is the local Community Based Organization contracted through the New York State Energy Research and Development Authorities (NYSERDA) Green Jobs Green New York (GJGNY) initiative.
