The Long Island Green Homes Initiative is a non-profit collaborative partnership of Long Island Towns, community-based organizations and Molloy College funded primarily with a community outreach grant awarded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) in order to help Long Islanders improve their homes and use energy more wisely in their everyday lives.
Via one-on-one support from one of our experienced Energy Navigators, Long Island homeowners receive a free energy assessment, and are connected with government funds and local, certified contractors to receive money saving and energy efficient improvements to their homes. In addition to reducing your home’s carbon footprint and saving you money, the Long Island Green Homes Initiative stimulates job growth and business opportunities—right here on Long Island.
