The Village of Churchville is a member of the Independent Energy Efficiency Program (IEEP), which is a not-for-profit corporation that seeks energy solutions designed to create measurable advantages for New York State Municipal Utilities and customers in a technology-focused environment. In 2008 the Village of Churchville implemented or planned to participate in 11 of the 28 programs the IEEP offers which you can find at www.ieepny.com and click on annual reports. The 2009 report will be coming soon.
Some of the programs the IEEP has put in place that benefit Village residents are:
- CFL’s - New residents now receive a couple CFL (Compact Fluorescent Light Bulb) when they move into the Village to help them start their change from regular bulbs to energy saving bulbs.
- Appliance Advantage - This program encourages residents to buy energy star labeled appliances by offering a rebate when you mail in the information of your new purchase.
- Tame the Refrigerator Monster - This program offers residents a $75.00 rebate when you have the IEEP pick up your old unit (must be in working order- cold & operational).
- Infrared Technology - The Village will do an infrared scan of your house to check for energy loss. This will then be put into a written report with pictures and will be explained to you by an employee of the Village of Churchville.
The Village encourages you to take advantage of these great programs!
