The Town of East Hampton has updated existing lighting fixtures with energy efficient LED’s in 23 of its buildings and installed programmable smart thermostats in 5 buildings. The installations were done at no cost to the Town through PSEG and South Fork Peak Savers' energy efficiency incentive program, which aims to reduce energy consumption and peak electric demand on the South Fork.
Swapping out existing lighting and thermostats with more efficient versions saves energy and saves money. These simple upgrades to Town buildings will reduce electricity consumption by hundreds of thousands of kilowatt-hours and save the Town tens of thousands of dollars in energy costs annually.
