Workshops were a success!

by PathStone Staff on 06/27/14

We had our free home energy efficiency workshop here at our office in Rochester on Tuesday, and the room was full of people who have now been educated on how they can receive grant money to lower their energy bills and increase the comfort of their homes. We also had a workshop Thursday night in Canandaigua for the Canandaigua Home and Energy Improvement Program. Two great workshops have been completed this week, but if you didn't have a chance to make it by, don't worry! We will have more workshops coming up next month.

The next workshop in Rochester is scheduled for July 29th. There will also be Rochester workshops on August 26th and September 30th. All of these workshops are scheduled to take place at 5:30 pm. 

If you were unable to make the Canandaigua workshop, we will most likely be holding another workshop out in Canandaigua towards the end of July! Keep your eyes and ears open for this opportunity!

Mayor Bloomberg and NYC Embrace LED Lighting Solutions

by PathStone Staff on 10/24/13

This is a great read on how New York City is improving its energy efficiency, reducing its maintenance and utility consumption costs and passing the savings on to the taxpayers.



LED lighting is a great way for any household or company to increase energy sustainability and keep long-term costs low, thereby saving money over time. The NYC project is expected to save a combined $14 million in combined energy and maintenance costs each year. Over the 20 year expected life of these bulbs, thats $280 million.

Now that's a bright idea for a brighter future. How much can you save?

Weatherization Assistance Program

by PathStone Staff on 08/15/13

Good Afternoon!


Do you have a drafty home, high energy bills, issues with heating or problems keeping the rooms in your home temperate throughout the year?

The Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is federally funded through the U.S. Departments of Energy and Health and Human Services to provide energy conservation measures to income eligible households. This provides free money to homeowners and renters in households at 60% or less of the state median income with priority given to senior citizens, families with children and households with handicapped or homebound residents for the purpose of improving energy efficiency, making safety upgrades and providing education. Recipients of HEAP are automatically income eligible.

This program helps reduce energy costs in your home and make your more comfortable, improving your standard of living!

All parts of the state are covered and PathStone is your local provider for these services in the Monroe County outside the city limits. For Monroe County residents living in the Rochester City limits, call Action for a Better Community (ABC) at 585-442-4160. If you reside outside of Monroe County, contact your local town hall, utilities provider, senior group or other services provider to receive weatherization assistance in your area.

We are excited to announce that the waiting list for the Monroe County WAP is much shorter than this time last year! Sign up today to reserve your place on the Monroe County waiting list. Or give us a call at 585-442-2030.

Cooler Weather Is Here

by PathStone Staff on 08/14/13

Good Afternoon!


Heat waves and high dewpoints have kept this summer relatively hot and if you're like most New Yorkers, you probably haven't had to run heating system in a while. That could change soon with local forecasts showing that the Fingerlakes Region will dip into the 50s overnight tonight and through the rest of the work week.

This heating season, don't be caught off guard with faulty or inefficient equipment. By receiving a free or reduced cost home energy assessment, you can take the first step in assuring your home is ready for whatever winter brings, not to mention save money on energy costs. This comprehensive whole-home assessment will look at where your home is losing energy (money) and how best to remedy any issues.

To find out more about scheduling an energy assessment, please call 585-442-2030. If you would like to learn more about energy programs through PathStone or are curious about energy services in your area, browse our website or sign up for an upcoming free energy efficiency seminar.
