Tompkins County deemed Clean Energy Community

TOMPKINS COUNTY (WENY) - Tompkins County is the first county in the Southern Tier to be designated a Clean Energy Community.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority has recognized Tompkins County for its leadership in reducing energy and driving clean energy in its communities.

Tompkins County received the designation for completing four of 10 high-impact clean energy actions identified by NYSERDA as part of the Clean Energy Communities initiative. In addition, the designation gives Tompkins County an opportunity to apply for up to $250,000 toward additional clean energy projects, with no local cost share.
