Tonawanda News — The Town of Tonawanda’s Commission for the Conservation of the Environment will host Kate Howard, program manager for PUSH Green WNY, next week as part of its ongoing speaker series.

Howard will speak at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Philip Sheridan Community Room, 3200 Elmwood Ave. She will discuss financial incentives and rebate opportunities that can assist town and village residents in improving their home’s energy efficiency.

“This is a great opportunity for our residents to learn how they can actually get money back from the state by practicing energy conservation and making changes that will only continue to save them money into the future,” Town Supervisor Anthony Caruana said.

Wednesday’s event is free and open to the public.

PUSH Green is an energy program funded by People United for Sustainable Housing and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. The program helps residents reduce bills and usage, and also creates local jobs.

PUSH Green provides residents with free energy assessments, installation services and low-cost financing.
