Energy Democracy on the Road

Two community leaders and two staff went to Albany for a statewide convening on Energy Democracy. Here around 15 different organizations from across the state came together to figure out ways to put our communities at the forefront of changing energy policy. Simultaneously PUSH Executive Director Aaron Bartley went on a trip to Germany to bring ideas that are working there back to Buffalo and New York State.

 Energy Democracy in Action 

We held (2) events in November  – 1. Our Power Party 2. A press event. The New York State Department of Public Service and big energy companies are trying rewrite our energy future (this includes the future of renewable and clean energy) in New York State without our input. We need them to slow down the process so that the people can have a say in their energy future.
