Southampton Town Adopts NYStretch Energy Code

Color-Seal-250x250

On Tuesday, December 14 at the Southampton Town Board Meeting, the Town Board voted unanimously on a resolution to modify the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) standards and incorporate the NYStretch Energy Code-2020 as a component of the Town’s Energy Conservation Code.  

The Town is focusing on reducing energy consumption through land use via code amendments and programs that specifically target a reduction in energy consumption by requiring high efficiencies for all new or substantially reconstructed residential dwellings.  The new code is 10-12% more efficient than the minimum requirements of the 2020 Energy Conservation Construction Code of New York State.  

This is another proactive step by the Town of Southampton to enact legislation that promotes sustainability, environmental protection, and energy conservation.  In recent years, the Town has made great strides to meet the energy and carbon neutrality goals set forth in the Town’s Sustainability Plan.  

“This is one of many steps that the Town and State have taken towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions and energy dependence,” said Councilman John Bouvier, lead sponsor of the resolution.  “It’s visionary in some ways and hopefully it will encourage other municipalities, our neighbors in this region, to continue to push toward these goals.”

For more information, contact John Bouvier at 631-287-5745.
