New Website Helps North Hempstead Community Achieve Energy Savings 

North Hempstead, NY – Supervisor Jennifer DeSena and the Town Board are excited to launch a new Go GreeNH Energy Savings webpage to help residents power their homes, cars, and lives more sustainably. The new website provides step by step instructions, tools, and financial incentives to kickstart their energy savings, starting with a free home energy audit to learn where the biggest energy efficiency gains can be made.

The page also links residents with various resources, including:
• PSEG’s Energy Star rebate program
• Information and financing incentives for solar, including battery storage and community solar
• Incentives and tools to assess renewable heating options like air source heat pumps which are two to four times as efficient as conventional sources like oil or propane
• Information and incentives for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles
• Guidance to combine state and federal energy incentives to achieve the most financial savings

“The Town-wide Climate Change Survey North Hempstead conducted in 2022 shows residents in North Hempstead want to be part of the climate solution,” stated Supervisor Jennifer DeSena. “With this new website we are providing our residents with step-by-step guidance to implement cleaner and greener energy practices.”

The Go GreeNH Energy Savings webpage is just one of many actions the Town is taking to power the Town more sustainably. Additional initiatives include fast tracking permits for solar and EV charger installations, continual replacement of lighting with more energy efficient LEDs in buildings and streetlights, and the creation of a bike share program in Port Washington. This multifaceted approach underscores North Hempstead's dedication to a more sustainable and environmentally conscious future.

Residents can access the Town’s new Go GreeNH Energy Savings webpage along with other tools and resources to mitigate climate change at NorthHempsteadNY.gov/ClimateAction.
