Energy Conservation

The Borough of Seaside Park has recently made great strides in the area of Environmental Stewardship. As one of the newest EnergyStar Paratners, Seaside Park will have access greater access to the resources and skills necessary to drive the community to the forefront of environmental stewardship.

We have joined the national effort of Environmental Sustainability through EnergyStar and Sustainable NJ. If you want more information about these programs please visit www.energystar.gov or www.sustainablenj.com

Through these programs we have developed a community Green Team whose role is to define the community’s responsibility to the environment and through educating the publc will turn Seaside Park into the model community for Environmental Stewardship!

We look forward to working with our community and our new partners to developing the best programs that will respect the environment, save money, jobs and most importantly improve the area where we live.
