New York's Changing Energy System: A Path to Local Power

  • SUNY New Paltz Student Union, Room 100 North New Paltz, NY 12561 United States (map)

New York State is changing its energy system, giving our communities the chance to create a locally-based, clean energy model that will serve our needs. How can we seize this moment?

Join Citizens for Local Power for this FREE public workshop and learn:

  • The basics on how New York’s current energy system works
  • What’s happening with the “REV,” the State’s energy reform initiative
  • How Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) offers a path to clean local power, good jobs, competitive and stable rates, and resiliency
  • What you can do to support a Community Choice energy program in our area

Co-Sponsored by Catskill Mountainkeeper, hosted by CRREO - Center for Research, Regional Education and Outreach.
