We are honored to be hosting the New York Winter Statewide Energy Tour with NYSERDA at our December session. The Tour is an interactive, informational session designed to increase awareness of New York State's clean energy policies and community aggregation initiatives including NY Prize.
NY Prize is a first-in-the-nation $40 million competition to enlist communities to advance plans for local power infrastructure designed to promote clean energy, reliability, resiliency, and affordability. It is part of New York's comprehensive effort to build a cleaner, more resilient, and affordable infrastructure. These coordinated and complementary activities include Reform Energy Vision (REV), NY Green Bank, the Clean Energy Fund (CEF) and The NY-Sun Initiative. This trailblazing approach is designed to rapidly integrate clean energy -- promoting more efficient use of energy, deeper penetration of renewable energy resources such as wind and solar, and wider deployment of "distributed" energy resources, such as microgrids, on-site power supplies, and storage. It will highlight potential partnership and investment opportunities for regional businesses and discuss ways communities can reduce energy costs, promote clean energy and help build a more resilient, reliable, and affordable energy infrastructure.
