Walk The Talk: Make The Swap

One thing YOU can do to help our Earth in 2018!

ED light bulbs use at least 75% less energy, and last 25 times longer than incandescent lighting. It’s time to ditch those last incandescent bulbs. ConEdison estimates that switching to LEDs can save you as much as $6 per bulb every year. Did you know ConEdison customers are entitled to instant rebates for buying ENERGY STAR rated LED bulbs and appliances? Find out more on ConEdison’s website.

Take the pledge on Twitter or Facebook to switch to LEDs in 2018!

Impact: EmPower New York

Green City Force Illuminators are graduates of our program whom GCF hires to conduct energy services work on fee-for-service contracts. GCF employed over 60 graduates in social enterprise programs in 2017!

In recognition of the Illuminator’s work on EmPower New York, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) granted the following award to GCF:

Exceptional Service Award

for its NY Residential Existing Homes Program

This Home Performance with ENERGY STAR award celebrates the outstanding work of GCF’s entirely graduate run EmPower New York operation, that provides no-cost energy efficiency solutions to low-income New Yorkers. This recognition is for using innovative approaches to customer engagement and developing our internal staff to their highest potential.


GCF grad and EmPower Program Associate Miguel Rodriguez accepts the award on GCF’s behalf at the Home Performance Coalition (HPC) Conference in Saratoga Springs, NY.
