The Green Renter

Tuesday, Jan 17, 2006

While City and State administrations have each articulated and acted upon impressive commitments to energy conservation and efficiency on a large scale, the actual task of mitigating waste, and its many health related, economic and environmental consequences, is open to experimentation. Among the most exciting local initiatives, currently being explored for a section of the Lower East Side, is the Greening-A-Block project.

Jointly supported by local politicians, Community Board 3, NYSERDA and the Neighborhood Energy Network (NEN), Greening-A-Block aims to create an urban showcase of energy efficiency, pollution reduction, job development and community sustainability on a single-block scale. The project seeks to establish a working template that may ultimately be embraced by other City communities and beyond.

Join efficiency/renewable energy expert and Greening-A-Block co-originator Jeff Perlman for an extensive discussion of the project's history, progress, method and underlying concepts and goals.

Date: Tuesday, January 17, 2006, 7:00 pm
Location: Solar One in Stuyvesant Cove Park, East 23rd Street and the East River

Free RSVP Required.
RSVP: neidl@solar1.org.
