The Clean Energy Communities (CEC) program allows local governments in New York State to implement clean energy actions, save energy costs, create jobs, and improve the environment. In addition to providing tools, resources, and technical assistance, the program recognizes and rewards leadership for the completion of clean energy projects.
Communities that complete 4 out of 10 “High Impact Actions” will be designated by New York State as a Clean Energy Community and be eligible to apply for grants to fund additional clean energy projects. At no cost to the local government, Clean Energy Communities Coordinators are available to help local leaders to:
- Develop and prioritize clean energy goals
- Access guidance resources such as templates for legislation, procurement, and contracts
- Take advantage of available funding and technical assistance opportunities
