Working with Local Government to Improve Community Energy Efficiency

Human activity has now been accepted to play a major role in climate change. While international agreements aim to reduce fossil fuel emissions, many communities and local governments are taking a more active role by pledging to change their practices to reflect their concern for the environment. In New York State, the Clean Energy Communities Program and the Climate Smart Communities Certification Program assist local communities to increase their overall sustainability for benefits such as the creation of jobs, a cleaner environment, and government awarded grants and other financial incentives. It is my goal to assist my hometown of West Seneca in pledging to these two programs. My presentation will detail the steps I recommend for my community to take to meet the requirements of said programs.
