Many New Yorkers struggle to have healthy, affordable homes and to pay their energy bills. Energy efficiency measures can be a very effective way to address these needs and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions in one go, and right now NY is exploring different ways to reach the new energy efficiency targets.
To learn more about NY's new energy efficiency targets, join our online teach-in on Monday, October 8. AGREE's Executive Director and energy policy expert Jessica Azulay will update you about what's in the works regarding NY's energy efficiency policy and what you can do to help make the policy better. The teach-in will help you prepare to make a very important (quick) call on Tuesday and possibly attend one of the upcoming stakeholder forums: Syracuse (October 9), Binghamton (October 23), Deer Park (October 25), the Bronx (October 31), Malone (being rescheduled).
We also created a postcard for you and your friends to sign. The card asks NYSERDA and the Public Service Commission to give the people of NY an energy efficiency policy that is far better and far bolder than merely continuing to do what we are already doing. To get your name on a card, please reply to this email with your full name and zip code. We will enter names and deliver stacks of signed cards at the upcoming energy efficiency stakeholder forums being held around NY. That way you have a voice in the process even if you can't attend a forum.
We look forward to welcoming you on-line at the October 8 teach-in and having your help with the October 9 call-in, and we hope you will respond to this email to sign a postcard pushing NY to do more to advance energy efficiency in our state!
All the best!
