CONTINUING COURSE OFFERINGS BY ZOOM

CLIMATE MOBILIZATION IN LINCOLN TOWERS
New York City has passed laws that require large buildings to meet new energy efficiency and greenhouse
gas emission limits. Each building must take action to comply, in steps beginning in 2024. By 2050, all will
have to reduce their emissions by 80%.
The purpose of this workshop is to educate ourselves, and our residents on New York City energy-related laws, particularly
Local Law 97, and energy ratings, in LL95 and LL97. The NYC Department of Buildings, its city council, and several
independent groups offer information and technical guidance on how to comply. We plan to disseminate what we learn from
them about the most cost-effective ways to achieve greater energy efficiency.
Dates:Second Tuesday of Every Month at 7:30-8:30pm. Next meeting:February 14.
Coordinator:Margaret Perkins, PhD in biochemistry, a climate activist working
with Local Climate Group 350NYC to implement NYC Local Law 97.
