Hempstead Town upgrading house for office space, education

Officials say the house in Point Lookout, which was built by NYIT students, will be the first ‘smart house’ owned by a municipality.

David Schieren, chief executive of the Island Park-based EmPower Solar, was an NYIT graduate student at the Old Westbury campus who participated in the school’s 2005 entry to the solar decathlon. That house now resides at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point.
