GREEN JOBS/ GREEN NEW YORK

Idea

Tomorrow, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. will join Deputy Borough President Aurelia Greene, the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation (BOEDC), NYSERDA, and environmental group Sustainable South Bronx will launch the Green Jobs/Green New York Bronx Outreach Program (GJ/GNY-Bronx).

The goal of the GJGNY-BX Program is to reduce energy usage in Bronx buildings and lower energy costs for Bronx home and building owners.

Several homes and buildings in the Bronx have gotten free energy assessments and are moving toward retrofits, including the home of Deputy Borough President Aurelia Greene.
