The Morris County Community Development  Program is funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This program is a cooperative effort of the federal government through the Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders and 37 municipalities to meet housing and neighborhood needs throughout the County. The Housing Rehabilitation Program is only one of the many activities receiving funding through this annual grant.




The Green Team wants to share this smart energy advice made available from our local electric utility:

Some common-sense hot weather tips residents can follow to stay comfortable while using electricity wisely during this period of high demand:   

• Set thermostats as high as comfort will allow.  Every degree you can increase the temperature in your home will result in using about 3 percent less energy during the hottest summer days.   
• During sunny weather, close drapes or blinds on windows facing the sun to prevent direct radiant heating from impacting interior temperatures.   
• Use fans – moving air cools skin faster, resulting in greater comfort on hot days.   
• Use a programmable thermostat to keep temperatures higher when no one is home, and to reduce the temperature before arrival back home.  
• Only operate window air conditioners when someone is in the room.   
• Keep refrigerators and freezers as full as possible.  Frozen or cold items in the refrigerator help keep other items cool, reducing the amount of work the refrigerator has to do to maintain a lower temperature.   
• Close rooms that aren't used regularly during the summer, and close the air conditioning vents in those rooms, as well.  
• Avoid using heat-producing appliances during the hottest hours of the day.  The less heat produced at home, the less work the air conditioner will do.   
• Check air conditioner and furnace fan filters.  Clogged filters waste energy and money by forcing HVAC systems to work harder than necessary.
