Building a more energy resilient New York starts with creating clean energy opportunities for communities. Local governments can encourage smart and cost-effective energy choices in their communities, not only in government operations but in homes, businesses, and community institutions.
New York State municipalities can help decrease the cost of government operations through municipal solar, solar legislation, group purchasing, and locally-organized community education and outreach.
The Hudson Valley Regional Council is hosting a municipal solar workshop on May 9th, from 8:30am – 12pm at The Episcopal Church of St. Mary-in-the-Highlands in Cold Spring, NY, to help local governments understand the various measures available to increase the number of solar rooftops in their jurisdiction through legislation, group purchasing, locally-organized community education and outreach.
Attend the Buying Power 101: Municipal Solar Workshop to:
– Learn about municipal and large scale solar and community choice aggregation.
– Access guidance resources such as templates for legislation, procurement, and contracts.
– Take advantage of available funding and technical assistance opportunities.
