PUSH Green on the move!

Happy Summer, folks!

Though we try to get out often and enjoy the weather, we've also been really busy in and out of the office to get homes weatherized. We're implementing new components to the PUSH Green program including solar and our Warm and Dry on the West Side. We've added to the team with our newest energy advocate and awaiting one on the way! And by the time you read our next newsletter in September, we'll have moved our offices back into the heart of the neighborhood at 456 Massachusetts!

Thanks for reading about our work in the community!


You're cordially invited to...

Peter Sorkin!

Two months ago we were eager and pleased to welcome Peter Sorkin to the PUSH Green team as our newest Energy Advocate. We sat him down to ask him some questions so that future customers might know a little bit about him. 

1.       You’re not originally from Buffalo – but what kept you to the area?

I came up to Buffalo in the Spring of 2011 to do some organizing for the Working Families Party and after that initial campaign everyone I spoke to said that I should stick around for the summer. It’s also really beautiful around here. You are a stone’s throw away from some of the most beautiful scenery in the country.

2.       What are some things you love?

I love the natural beauty and the architecture in Buffalo. There’s a lot of history in these buildings.There’s also a great music scene. I’ve been a musician for some time now and there is always something happening.

3.       What got you interested in working at PUSH Green?

When I first came up to Buffalo I met some of my current co-workers tabling at one of the arts festivals. Protecting the environment is paramount to all our survival we all need clean air and water in which to live and everyone likes to save money on their energy bills.

Thanks Pete! We're glad to have you!
