The BPCA Downstate Chapter is looking to renovate the homes of local veterans. These are energy savings renovations that will reduce energy costs by 15-35% annually, while making the home more comfortable, safer and more valuable.
The funding for these renovations comes from donations of labor and materials from contractors, the New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA), and manufacturers’ donations of some materials.
