Tompkins County Soliciting Applications for the Renewed and Expanded Climate and Sustainable Energy Advisory Board

On November 4, 2021, the Tompkins County Legislature renewed the Climate and Sustainable Energy Advisory Board for another three-year term and expanded its membership to 11 seats. The Climate and Sustainable Energy Advisory Board is charged with providing expert input to the Legislature on regulatory initiatives and successful community programs relating to energy and climate change, as well as emerging energy efficiency, renewables, and climate adaptation technologies. The advisory board will continue to assist the County in engaging with state policymakers and regulators, utility staff, municipal leaders, developers, businesses, and community groups to set Tompkins County government and the wider Tompkins County community on a successful course to meeting the greenhouse gas emission reduction goals of the state’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act and the Tompkins County Energy Strategy as quickly as is fiscally and economically feasible.
