Mohawk Workshop Sparks Interest in PACE NY

Six Mohawk Valley municipalities are now studying the adoption of Energize NY Finance. Clean Energy Communities Coordinator Dan Sullivan reports he is in discussions with the cities of Amsterdam, Rome and Utica and the counties of Montgomery, Herkimer and Otsego County, as a result of a Nov. 16th gathering hosted by Mohawk Valley Economic Development District (MVEDD), where Sullivan is based.

Energize NY Finance leverages PACE (Property Assessed Clean Energy) financing to help commercial and non-profit property owners undertake deep energy improvements.
Projects include energy efficiency and renewable energy for commercial, multi-family, light industrial and nonprofit owned buildings.

In attendance were, from right: Joseph Del Sindaco, Energize NY/Energy Improvement Corporation and regional PACE-NY representative; Dan Sullivan, Clean Energy
Communities Coordinator, MVEDD; and Karen Sullivan, Otsego County Planning Director. Also in attendance were Joe Caruso, Executive Director, MVEDD, and Jack Spaeth, Utica Industrial Development Authority director.
