  • Contest Winners & 2nd Round Begins

    We can’t thank everyone who participated in this contest enough. PUSH Green is an important part of bringing Buffalo and Western New York into the new age of energy efficiency reform. Without your support we are nothing, we’re all in this together.

    Tell a friend, tell a friend of a friend – The Share the Savings Contest Round 2 begins! Share the Savings was such a SUCCESS that we are extending it into a second round! Anyone who was not a winner in the first round can build off of their previous number of referrals and will be in the running, along with any new participants who want to join. Round 2 of Share the Savings will go through May 1, 2013. We will announce the winner in mid-May. The top prize for this round will be a gift certificate to the Lexington Co-op.

  • Share the Savings Referral Contest Begins

    Tell a friend, tell a friend of a friend. The Share the Savings Referral contest has begun!

    "The community benefits by partnering with groups like PUSH Green. As the districts' representative, I applaud the program and its staff. Home improvements and energy efficiencies help homeowners, neighborhoods, and our next generation."

    - Erie County Legislator Lynn Marinelli

     

    As some may, or may not know PUSH Green, a newly formed arm of PUSH Buffalo, has been created to:

    1. Expand access to weatherization services across Erie County for all residents, regardless of income.
    2. Work with homeowners who are interested in lowering their utility bills and making their home more comfortable through energy efficiency improvements like insulation and high-efficiency furnaces that help to reduce our region’s energy usage
    3. Offers free comprehensive energy assessments of your home. If you choose to proceed with home improvements, we can help you access a new NYSERDA program that will allow you to finance improvements right on to your utility bill, eliminating the need to pay up-front.

    We need your help in spreading the word about our Share the Savings program! You can help in two simple ways:

    1. Improve Your Own Home. Schedule an appointment for a comprehensive home energy assessment, today! Call (716) 886-1780 and ask to speak with a PUSH Green Energy Advocate to get the process started!
