Keep Your Wallets Light and Your Light Bulbs Bright!

Neighbor to Neighbor Energy Challenge
Did you know that by switching from incandescent to compact florescent bulbs (CFLs), you generate far less pollution and save valuable household dollars over the lifetime of the bulb?

One easy way to ditch those energy inefficient bulbs and put money back into your wallet is to join the Neighbor to Neighbor Lighting Program.  Sign up and trained Clean Energy Corps team members will replace select incandescent bulbs with CFLs (insert drum roll) for freeClick here to join the lighting challenge and for detailed information about the replacement program.

Upcoming Events
If you would like to learn more about the lighting program initiative, join us at the library on Saturday, June 11 for a free workshop.  Bring your questions about lighting and other sponsored energy savings plans that may work for you.

About Neighbor to Neighbor
The Town of East Hampton is one of 14 communities in the state that has been selected to participate in the Neighbor to Neighbor Energy Challenge.  This challenge is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy.  The goal is to help reduce conventional energy usage by promoting energy efficiency measures and encouraging the use of clean energy options on a local level.

For each energy saving step we take as residents of East Hampton, our Town and participating community groups earn reward points that may be applied to clean energy related products and services to benefit our community as a whole. When you participate, everyone wins!
