Energize Somers was officially launched today, 2 years to the day of the NWEAC Celebration of Interdependence Day and the announcement of Grant Awards for Energy Efficiency from the DOE and NYSERDA. The launch was held in the Somers Town Hall ably led and guided by Councilman Richard Clinchy, SEEC member Frank Maricic and SEEC member Rick Warren. Help and expertise was provided by Patrice Hauptman of the EnergizeNY program. One of the novelties of the day was the reading of winning essays by Somers Middle School youngsters about their views of a Sustainable Somers. This was enlightening and encouraging and a big thanks to Rick for orchestrating and managing the project.
