Heat/Cool Smart Brooklyn Campaign Newsletter 5/22/20

Last month, we officially (virtually) launched our Heat/Cool Smart Brooklyn (HCSB) campaign, a Clean Heating and Cooling Communities program in Brooklyn Community Boards 2 & 6. HCSB is funded by NYSERDA and sponsored by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams. We are promoting green building retrofits in Brooklyn to save energy, money and the planet! 

Our campaign website can be found at www.heybrooklyn.org. Please visit the website and fill out a form to participate and get a free energy audit for your building! You can also stay connected with us on Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

CAMPAIGN UPDATES

After a competitive application process and detailed review, we have selected three participating contractors for the campaign: Green Home Logic, Green Team Long Island, and Arnica Heating and Air Conditioning. We are excited about their tremendous experience, excellent reputations, high quality of work and responsive customer service. Click here to read their profiles and find out more about their work.

We have successfully begun our workforce training courses, in collaboration with the Association for Energy Affordability (AEA), CUNY City Tech, HeatsmartBK, and sponsored by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams. Click here to learn more about the Workforce Training program, and for updates on upcoming courses.

Thank you to everyone who joined our Commercial and Multi-Family Webinar with BlocPower on Tuesday evening! The slides and recording are available here. We hope you can join us for our next virtual event, a Red Hook Community Climate Webinar co-hosted by RETI & ReGenCy on June 2nd at 6:30pm. Register here!

GET INVOLVED!

We are seeking the participation of residential and commercial property owners, students for our green workforce training classes, and volunteers to help with campaign outreach.

IN THE NEWS

ENERGY SAVING TIP!

Water use and energy use in buildings are related. The hot water in your home is generally heated using electricity or natural gas. The less hot water you use, the less energy you consume!
