In light of Earth Day tomorrow, Rep. Nita Lowey recently announced the Ardsley Public Library will receive $140,000 in federal funding to purchase and install a solar energy system on its roof.
The village, which is located in the town of Greenburgh, was awarded the federal grant by the New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) as a result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
In addition to the green energy project in Ardsley, New Castle will receive $126,000 for a solar wall, Briarcliff Manor will receive $248,000 for solar panel systems and Tarrytown will receive $15,000 for energy-efficient traffic signals.
Lowey was joined by government officials—including Ardsely Mayor Jay Leon, Greenburgh Supervisor Paul Feiner and Sen. Andrea Stewart-Cousins—as she announced the grant at the library over the weekend.
