|20%Reduction in Energy Intensity|
The Town of Huntington, founded in 1653, is a suburban community located in Suffolk County on the north shore of Long Island, New York.
Huntington’s participation in the Better Buildings Challenge builds on the measures taken and lessons learned from the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) program. Through EECBG, Huntington installed energy efficient street lighting fixtures and implemented a suite of upgrades to Huntington Town Hall, its flagship municipal facility, among other projects. As a Better Buildings Challenge Community Partner, the Town has committed to reducing the energy intensity of its municipal properties 20% by 2020. The Town will also seek to solicit project partners from local business and institutional communities and encourage new participants to take up the energy efficiency retrofit challenge. Huntington will continue its leadership role in the field of energy efficiency by sharing information and insights and interfacing with others in the Better Buildings Challenge network to foster innovation and achieve the nation’s goal of energy independence.
