Energy efficiency needs to be addressed

— On Aug. 23 market goer’s will have the opportunity to discuss home energy savings with an area expert.

Jennifer Monroe, of Adirondack Efficiency will be on hand to discuss state sponsored incentives and financing programs that are available to help individual home owners with their energy efficiency needs and projects.

Brenda Valentine, market steering committee member explained the decision to bring community programs to the market.

“We make every effort to provide access to fresh, healthy and affordable food to residents,” Valentine said. “We also decided that during the market we would provide information from educational, health and safety groups by utilizing interactive displays and demonstrations.”

Valentine said they wanted to create an avenue for local groups and organizations to promote their services. An overall objective of the Indian Lake Farmer’s market has been to create a festive atmosphere of regional resources while providing a much needed community service.

This week, Adirondack efficiency will be prepared to assist interested individuals in scheduling a home energy audit, Valentine explained.

“Scheduling a home energy audit is the first step necessary toward identifying where individuals can save money,” said Valtentine. “HEAP eligible residents may be also eligible to receive free energy saving home improvements.”

Due to the number of requests for home energy audits, Home Performance Contractors are hiring qualified individuals to perform this service. Interested individuals with construction experience and those that are willing to travel throughout the region are invited to stop by the Adirondack Efficiency table for more information.

The market will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the intersection of Routes 28 and 30 in the hamlet if Indian Lake. For more information on the market contact Brendad Valentine 648-5636. For more information on Adirondack Efficiency visit adirondackefficiency.com.
