Southampton Green Homes Program
The Town of Southampton’s Office of Energy and Sustainability administers the Southampton Green Homes Program as part of the larger Long Island Green Homes Consortium. Southampton Green Homes is a local program designed to promote home and building energy efficiency in the Town of Southampton. This program, through funding from the Department of Energy and cooperative agreements with Community Development Corporation of Long Island (CDCLI) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), helps Southampton residents save money, reduce carbon emissions and increase the health, safety and comfort of their homes and buildings. Southampton residents now have access to energy audits, installation services, low-cost financing and pathways to training for various green collar careers through the Green Jobs Green New York (GJGNY) program.
