SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Green Jobs, Green New York Program is working to upgrade homes to be more energy efficient. Officials with the Public Policy and Education Fund of New York led a discussion about how people can reduce energy costs Wednesday.
Through the Home Energy Efficiency Program, homeowners and renters can receive information on how to go about upgrading their home and receiving financial help to do it. Small businesses and non-profit organizations can also save on upgrades if they qualify for certain incentives and financing.
The Green Jobs Program is officially launching its aggregation pilot to help these homeowners and businesses to go green.
"We encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity. This year and next year is truly gonna set the foundation for upgrading upstate and making sure our homes are not only more energy efficient, but that we're saving on the cost of utilities and building more sustainable communities," said Patrice Chang, Project Manager for Public Policy and Education Fund Home Performance Program.
