NYSAC Releases Clean Energy Communities Report
Last week, NYSAC published a new report on NYSERDA's Clean Energy Communities program. The program invites elected officials and local government employees across the state to set clean energy goals, access guidance resources, and take advantage of funding and technical assistance in order to receive the Clean Energy Community designation. After your county is designated a Clean Energy Community, you can apply for grants for additional clean energy projects.
For more information, check out the Clean Energy Communities Program report, which can be found on this page.
