$25 million available through NYSERDA program

"In the eight years the Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) has coordinated the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) Clean Energy Communities (CEC) program for the North Country, the regional nonprofit has helped over 100 municipalities access resources and grants for projects that reduce energy use and costs. Last week, New York State launched the CEC program’s latest round, which makes available over $25 million in match-free grant funding for clean energy projects statewide. ANCA aims to help more North Country communities benefit from the updated 'Clean Energy Communities 3.0.'

As CEC Coordinators for the North Country, ANCA Energy Circuit Riders (ECRs) work closely with local governments to help them access grant funding for clean energy projects and earn recognition for implementing high impact actions that increase resilience and economic opportunity in their communities. ANCA invites communities in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence Counties to participate in the latest CEC round.

'There’s been a real momentum building through each round of the CEC program,' said ANCA ECR Nancy Bernstein. 'More and more municipalities are interested in completing high impact actions that reduce energy usage, save taxpayer dollars, and earn match-free grants that allow them to complete even more clean energy projects. I look forward to bringing more communities on board under CEC 3.0.'
