Come Learn about How East Hampton is Reducing its Reliability on Fossil Fuel

Councilwoman Overby will give a report on the previously discussed goals for reducing community wide fossil fuel electrical consumption on May 22 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Town Hall.

The public is invited to attend and meet meet the energy and sustainability advisory committee formed last year when the Comprehensive Energy Vision initiative was adopted by the Town Board. Its initiatives have inspired and helped established meaningful goals that would re-establish East Hampton’s leadership in sustainable practices and policies. Councilwoman Sylvia Overby, along with the Energy and Sustainability Committee will announce historic goals for reducing community wide fossil fuel electric consumption in the town of Easthampton.

The Town of East Hampton will work to substantially reduce energy consumption through conservation, education, and energy efficiency while significantly increasing the use of renewable energy technologies. The vision is for an economically efficient and environmentally sustainable comprehensive municipal energy policy.

Councilwoman Overby and The Town’s energy sustainability initiatives seek significant energy cost savings for residents and the local businesses, in addition to environmental and public health benefits. These town-wide benefits will help keep more money in the local economy.

Residents and business owners of East Hampton are invited to the May 22 meeting to hear about the steps that have been initiated to accomplish these goals as well as to meet the energy and Sustainability Committee.

Come learn about what the committee is doing, what problems we are facing, how the committee is addressing these issues, and how you can get involved.

Presenters include Councilwoman Overby, Energy and Sustainability ‘Committee chairman Frank Dalene, Renewable Energy Long Island executive director Gordian Raacke, and Natural Resource Department representative John Botus.
