Energy Forum

Sponsored by Council Member Costa Constantinides, and organized by 350NYC.org, the Community Energy Forum will feature presentations by NYC Retrofit Accelerator and NY Renews. It will be held Tuesday, April 17, from 7 – 9 pm at Variety Boys and Girls Club, 21-12 30th Road, LIC, NY 11102.

Find out how to Save Energy and Save Money in Your Building: About 70% of NYC’s greenhouse gas emissions come from heating, cooling, lighting and powering our buildings. NYC Retrofit Accelerator is a free city program that helps retrofit buildings to use less energy. Their staff will explain what energy conservation projects make sense for buildings like yours, and how to finance them. Invite your co-op and condo leaders and property managers.

Groundbreaking climate legislation proposed for New York State: With federal action blocked, New York State can lead by example. The Climate and Community Protection Act (CCPA) would legally require the New York State government to reach 100% renewable energy by 2050, with strong labor standards and investment in communities impacted by climate change and inequality in mind. The Climate and Community Investment Act (CCIA) would raise $7 billion of revenue per year to fund our renewable future through a modest fee on corporate polluters that damage our health and climate, explained Constantinides. This two-pronged platform is championed by NY Renews, a 140+ member coalition. Learn how you can help get it passed into law.
