Tell the Public Service Commission: New Yorkers demand renewables not more fracked gas!

After rejecting the Williams NESE pipeline, New York State is expected to make a decision on National Grid’s long-term energy plan on June 11. Join us to tell them to reject a gas pipeline "plan b" and to embrace the "no-infrastructure" alternative of energy efficiency, demand response, and heat pumps.

We can heat our homes without warming the planet

New Yorkers can reduce the demand for fossil fuels and make home heating more affordable, by changing the way our homes are heated and putting in the right policies.

Governor Cuomo has just announced a rebate program for geothermal heat pumps and a policy framework to reduce the use of home heating oil, propane, and gas in our homes.

Join us as we tour New York this week to raise awareness about how New York can convert from fossil fuel heating systems to efficient renewable-ready electric systems, such as cold climate heat pumps and geothermal heat pumps, which are widely available technologies.
