LIPC PowerUp Discussed At Rotary Meeting
March 12, 2017

Paul Merkelson shared his experience working with the Long Island Progressive Coalition’s (LIPC) PowerUp Communities Project at a recent Rotary Club of Great Neck meeting.

The nonprofit green energy program serving Nassau and Suffolk Counties enables homeowners to become energy efficient while protecting the environment and helping sustain jobs on Long Island. Merkelson explained how the PowerUp program connects homeowners with one-on-one support, government funds and certified contractors for energy-saving home improvements. The coalition is an independent contractor to the New York  State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
