The Energy Work Group looks to promote the adoption of the technologies and structural innovations that will underpin the transition to a sustainable energy economy in Westchester.
That energy vision will be characterized by high local content and participation. Community Choice Aggregation (Westchester Power) will be at the center of things, since it reaches the most people, but the really exciting developments will be built on top of and around this.
If you are passionate about the potential for renewable energy, efficiency, demand response, microgrids etc. to drive a clean energy transformation, new businesses, jobs and local dollar circulation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll loop you in.
