Clarkstown to Conduct Energy Audit


The Clarkstown Town Board has selected Daylight Savings Company to conduct a series of energy audits for all of its municipal buildings. The Board approved the contract at its Thursday, November 8, 2007 meeting.


Daylight Savings Company has a history of working for and conducting energy audits for New York municipalities. It was selected for the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s (NYSERDA’s) Energy Audit program for the Bronx, Westchester, Rockland and Orange Counties.


The NYSERDA’s Energy Audit program performs audits for small businesses, not for profit organizations, commercial enterprises and governmental facilities that help identify practical and financially viable improvements or modifications that could produce annual energy savings. Most often the savings comes as a result of energy –efficiency measures which in turn lead to a reduction in energy consumption. Reducing energy consumption has positive impacts on the environment and municipal budgets.


“This is a win/win for Clarkstown”, said Supervisor Gromack. “There just aren’t any down sides to a program that helps us reduce energy costs, reduce emissions and reduce our reliance on foreign energy sources.”


Gromack credited Town Board members for moving ahead with implementing the audit and acknowledged the leadership of Councilwoman Shirley Lasker on the issue. Earlier this year, Councilwoman Lasker encouraged the Town Board to join ICLEI, an international association of local governments committed to sustainable development and energy conservation.


“This audit, which will include a review of 12 Town buildings, will provide us with baseline information regarding how much energy we are currently using and ways in which we can reduce that consumption. Every dollar we save in energy consumption is one less dollar we will need in taxes.” said Lasker.


“But it’s not just about the money” she added, “It’s also about our environment. Reducing energy consumption leads to cleaner air and a healthier environment I’m proud that our town has taken the first of many steps to join other state, county and local governments as well as major corporations in a systematic plan to reduce energy consumption, conserve resources and clean up our air”.
