Clean Energy Communities Initiative Launched in New York

Elected officials and representatives from environmental organizations gathered on the banks of the Hudson River to launch Hudson Valley Clean Energy Communities initiative, part of a statewide campaign to go green.  During the launch event hosted by the Hudson Valley Regional Council at SUNY Orange Newburgh, elected officials from Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester counties learned about the new statewide Clean Energy Communities initiative.

“It’s a truly great day for clean energy,” noted Betta Broad, Outreach Director for New Yorkers for Clean Power, who said New York is a leader in renewable energy implementation.

The New York State Energy Research & Development (NYSERDA) program will offer support of $50,000 to $250,000, under the Clean Energy Fund, to municipalities and other local jurisdictions to invest in local projects and policies that will help implement and transition to renewable energy, energy efficiency and clean transportation, save energy costs and create jobs while improving the environment.
