TUPPER LAKE — The Town of Moriah is sponsoring meetings to provide information to local residents and small businesses about free and low-cost energy services.
The meetings will be held Tuesday, June 26. The schedule is 1 p.m. at the Moriah Senior Center, Port Henry Train Station, 14 Park Place, Port Henry; and 4:40 to 6:30 p.m. at George’s Restaurant, with free pizza provided. Short presentations will be given at 5 and 6 p.m.
Speakers from New York’s EmPower NY and Home Performance with Energy Star Programs will share information about free and low-cost energy services available to residences at all income levels.
George’s Restaurant will discuss its experience with National Grid’s Small Business Program, which has resulted in savings on its electricity bill.
Volunteers will be on hand to assist those who want to apply.
People from households that qualified for HEAP should bring a copy of their most recent approval letter. Households with incomes above HEAP guidelines should bring a 12-month summary of the electric and heating usage for the building.
The Town of Moriah is working with the Minerva-based Community Power Network of New York State and ADKCAP to bring this program to community residents.
Questions about the energy meetings should be addressed to Jennifer Monroe at 251-2525 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since its launch in 2011, ADKCAP’S Community Energy Efficiency Management program has formed partners with four pilot communities.
Moriah has conducted an energy inventory, received energy audits on the Town Hall and water plant, held outreach meetings for residents and small businesses to learn about efficiency projects and expressed interest in installing solar PV at the landfill.
The other involved communities, Schroon, Long Lake and the Village of Tupper Lake, have similar accomplishments.
ADKCAP is a partner of the Wild Center in Tupper Lake and 30 other institutions in the region. It works through existing organizations to implement a proactive strategy to enable the Adirondacks to improve energy and cost savings.
