NYSERDA's Focus on Local Governments Program

A new program from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) will assist municipalities with identifying, planning, financing and implementing sustainable solutions to energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction.  The Focus on Local Governments Program will provide direct and general assistance to local governments interested in pursuing sustainability initiatives – from answering questions about energy efficiency opportunities and NYSERDA programs to assisting with the development of a GHG inventory and discussing “best practices” for setting and achieving a GHG reduction goal.  Trained energy experts, serving as regional “Points of Contact” (POCs) will coordinate and work with regional and local planning organizations, professional organizations and others to provide assistance. Municipalities will be contacted by the early fall of 2009 to describe the services available through this Program and invite your participation.  If your community is taking steps toward becoming sustainable, and would like to learn more about this Program, please contact the Focus Project Manager, Amy Santos, at santosa@pirnie.com.
