Village of Brocton to Join the Independent Energy Efficiency Program, Inc. (IEEP)
Rebate Forms: (If you are unable to print a form, they are also available at Village Hall for your convenience.)
Brocton, New York – The Brocton Village Board is pleased to announce the passing of a resolution to join the Municipal Electric Utilities Association’s Independent Energy Efficiency Program, Inc. The IEEP was established in 2001 and has invested over $52 million in a variety of commercial, industrial and residential energy efficiency programs designed for New York State’s municipal electric utilities. Currently, thirty-five municipal systems participate in the IEEP program.
Under New York State’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, all New Yorkers are charged with aggressive goals including 70% renewable energy by 2030, achieving 100% zero-emission electricity by 2040 and reducing greenhouse gas emissions economy-wide at least 85% by 2050. By offering energy efficiency programs to customers, the Village of Brocton will demonstrate our commitment to energy efficiency and will support the State’s energy and environmental goals.
Energy efficiency programs can reduce costs by reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. All Brocton Electric customers will contribute to the IEEP by paying $1 for every 1,000-kilowatt hours consumed, with an average residential customer paying between $8-$15 per year.
The Village of Brocton and the IEEP and will begin to offer these programs in 2022. The programs will offer awareness, education, and incentives designed to encourage Brocton’s electric customers to install high efficiency lighting and heating systems, increase building insulation levels, and to purchase EnergyStar® labeled appliances, among other offerings.
More information on future programs will be provided in the upcoming months. To learn more about the IEEP, visit the website at www.ieepny.com.
