Energy Conservation & Green Power

On June 16th, 2011, the green planning subcommittee met for the second time in a six part series to lay the groundwork for future activities to promote green building methods and smart growth in the Borough. The subcommittee's first topic, energy, spurred a great discussion on how the Borough can incentivize homeowners, rental housing owners, and businesses to take steps to reduce their consumption.

The subcommittee would like to research programs that promote weatherization and tackling the low-hanging fruit first and attempt to achieve higher levels of energy reduction once more of the public is educated about energy efficiency and renewable energy options.
