New York is constantly working to advance clean energy statewide. Governor Cuomo has announced the launch of Clean Energy Communities, a $16 million initiative, as part of the state’s Reforming the Energy Vision strategy. The New York State Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has identified ten high-impact clean energy actions, and communities that complete at least four of these actions will be designated as Clean Energy Communities. These communities will become eligible to apply for grants of up to $250,000 to support additional clean energy projects. With this incentive, local governments may be able to motivate their communities to actively work toward energy efficiency while advancing the REV goal of having 50 percent of New York’s energy come from renewable resources by 2030.
