Westbury Village Mayor Peter Cavallaro announced “good news for residents” as the village is offering a savings program through East Coast Power and Gas for residents to potentially save up to eight percent off natural gas costs.
Cavallaro said residents should have received a mailing from the Nassau County Village Officials Association (VOA) regarding a home gas savings program that will cut eight percent off of your natural gas costs. The offer is open to village residents and any other interested residents as well.
“The program, which was approved by the VOA is through East Coast Power and Gas, requires no long-term contract or commitment. It works on a month-to-month basis, and you can cancel it with a phone call,” said Cavallaro.
“The way your gas is delivered and billed to you by National Grid will not change. National Grid will also continue to provide your customer service. You simply get an eight percent reduction in the cost over the market price that you would pay through National Grid,” said Cavallaro, who noted that interested residents can enroll through the mailing or directly through East Coast Power and Gas.
“This program is a great benefit for consumers in this economic environment, when every penny counts. However, there may be other similar programs available to you from other vendors that may also provide you with savings. We don’t endorse this or any other program, but we are comfortable allowing the company to offer it to you based on the VOA’s ‘stamp of approval,’” said the mayor. Cavallaro also noted that the village municipal buildings have been operating under the East Coast Power and Gas savings program for more than a year.
The village also reminded residents of the village’s recycling program and presented a link to a PSA made by a Westbury resident and Friends Academy student, Katie Bauer.
“In keeping with our efforts to increase recycling in the village, and to increase public awareness of the Westbury Recycling Program, take a look at this terrific video PSA, developed and produced by a very talented and creative Westbury resident high school student, Katie Bauer,” said a village representative in an email.
