Legislature Accepts Clean Energy Communities Grant

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

The Legislature, by unanimous vote, accepted a three-year, $250,000 Clean Energy Communities grant from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), and approved a related adjustment to the 2018 budget. The funds were awarded for two purposes: greening the County’s fleet (through advancing conversion to plug-in electric vehicles) and developing the County’s Business Energy Navigator program. The Business Energy Navigator program will work with businesses in their earliest stages of design and conceptualization of new construction or major renovation projects to help set energy goals and understand energy options. Anticipating receipt of the grant, a portion of the grant funds, and related matching funds, were included in the 2018 adopted county budget.
