Info session announced for Clinton/Kirkland Clean Energy Campaign


CLARK MILLS — The Clinton/Kirkland Climate Smart Task Force, the village of Clinton, and the town of Kirkland will host a second information session in the Clinton/Kirkland Clean Energy Campaign at 7 p.m. Monday, June 13 at Clark Mills American Legion on South Street.

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.

The first session was held last month at Kirkland Town Library.

Modern heat pumps provide both heating and cooling more efficiently than fossil-fuel based furnaces and dramatically reduce carbon emissions, organizers said.

Interested residents in Kirkland and other local towns, are encouraged to attend.

Like the earlier event, this will feature a presentation by representatives from Heat Smart Mohawk Valley that 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, etc.

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

The campaign is co-sponsored by the Clinton Area Chamber of Commerce, Clinton Central School, Hamilton College and the Clinton-Kirkland Improvement Corporation.
