Congratulations to the newest municipalities that have been designated as Clean Energy Communities
in Eastern NY. Each of these communities has completed at least four of 10 “high impact actions
” that save energy and money and contribute to lowering greenhouse gas emissions – activities such as tracking energy use in municipal buildings, training for improved energy code enforcement, and policies to support solar energy.
Under the program, grants are available to 18 communities in each region of the state. All city, town, village, and county governments, tribes, and nations may apply. The grants range in size from $50,000 to $250,000 depending on the community’s population. No local match is required.
