Energize NY Champions

Pastor Michelle Lewis

Pastor Michelle has been volunteering with Energize New Rochelle since January 2017. Her biggest role at Energize NY is connecting the faith-based community with energy efficiency messages. Michelle was the leader of orchestrating our Family Go Green Day hosted by the New Rochelle Methodist Church in Spring 2018.

Miriam O’Malley Dias

Miriam is a very active member of her Neighborhood Associations. In 2016 Miriam organized two Neighborhood Association meetings in Glenwood Lake in which the Energize New Rochelle Energy Coach gave a presentation to help explain the Building Science of home energy efficiency. After Miriam moved, she re-started the French Ridge Neighborhood Association, in part to bring Energize New Rochelle messages to her new neighborhood.

Amy Pace

Amy Pace is always ready to lend a hand to the committee. She’s an expert at recruiting business supporters, making phone calls to New Rochelle homeowners, generating new ideas and connecting community groups. She can often be found tabling for Energize New Rochelle at different events around the city.

Father Robert Gahler, Co-chair of the Energy NR Committee

One of the privileges I have is serving on the Energy Committee of New Rochelle. It is an opportunity for me to live out encouraging other people to come on with Energize New Rochelle and take advantage of the opportunity to have a home energy assessment done, to better understand the particular situation of your house. Now is the time to do it, seize the day, as the Romans said!

Jeff Apotheker

I enjoy participating on the EnergyNR committee because it gives me an opportunity to dive into a global issue by helping our community become more sustainable.
