The information presented will benefit the individual consumer by describing ways to lower one’s energy costs, while simultaneously benefitting society with reduced energy consumption that ultimately conserves the earth’s natural resources.
BPU ombudsperson Ken Sheehan will provide several different strategies for consumers to improve energy efficiency and reducing their energy bills – including implementing energy efficient structural upgrades, using energy efficient lighting, participating in rebate programs for everyone and special ones for senior citizens, and exploring alternative energy initiatives. Mr. Sheehan will explain the advantages and mechanics of going solar, as well as the community solar project, Referring to a larger, centrally located solar array or facility that is divided among multiple participants or subscribers, the community solar project is particularly suited for renters or homeowners whose homes cannot accommodate solar panels.
“I am so pleased that the BPU can lead a conversation on this critically important topic. Each of us, while saving money on our energy bills, can play a role in reducing energy consumption and our impact on the climate,” said Assemblyman Zwicker.
