Organizers set to launch Clinton/Kirkland Clean Energy Campaign


CLINTON — The Clinton/Kirkland Climate Smart Task Force, the Village of Clinton, and the Town of Kirkland, will launch the Clinton/Kirkland Clean Energy Campaign during an event at Kirkland Town Library, 55 1/2 College St., at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 27.

The campaign is aimed at encouraging residents to conduct free energy audits of their homes and consider installing air-source or geothermal heat pumps in place of oil, propane, or natural gas furnaces. Modern heat pumps provide both heating and cooling more efficiently than fossil-fuel based furnaces and dramatically reduce carbon emissions.

Interested residents in Kirkland and other towns, may attend. The event will feature a presentation by representatives from Heat Smart Mohawk Valley, who will explain how heat pumps work and New York subsidies available to help cover installation costs. Several area vendors will be present to answer questions about installation, costs and other topics.

The April 27 event will also be available virtually. To register, go to:
