  • Jan Clear hosts PUSH Green's third house meeting

    On Friday, July 20, PUSH Green Captain Jan Clear sat down with a few of her friends and neighbors to hold her very own #greenhousemeeting. The meeting, which took place at Clear's Kenmore home was accompanied by a tight knit group of homeowners all looking forward to learning more about the PUSH Green program.

    During Clear's house meeting, attendees not only learned about Erie County's new energy efficiency program; they also learned how the program can help them save money and transform their community.

    After everyone arrived and caught up with Clear's family, Jan and PUSH Green Energy Advocate Alex Kuttesch officially called the meeting to order. Clear and Kuttesch began by going over the PUSH Green process and program benefits.



    As Clear's guests began to "loosen up," they began to talk about the current state of the economy and how the PUSH Green program could help address these issues.

    After a quick break, Alex began to talk to group members about our awesome Friends and Neighbors program - a program that offers more discounts and could allow Clear's guests to get their energy upgrades together.

    Guests of Clear's house meeting left feeling reassured. They left knowing that our staff would be there every step of the way, providing them with the necessary guidance to get their homes upgraded with extreme ease and care.

    At the end of the presentation, interested homeowners immediately signed up for their free comprehensive home energy assessment.

    Thanks Jan and cheers to a great house meeting!
