ANCA works with North Country residents, businesses and communities to help them reduce energy use, costs and carbon emissions. Staffed by a team of Energy Circuit Riders (ECRs), our Clean Energy Program collaborates with community leaders and partner organizations to provide equitable access to climate smart initiatives, while growing our region’s clean energy workforce.
Programs for Municipalities
ANCA works closely with municipal leaders to navigate local, state and federal clean energy initiatives. ECRs are currently implementing NYSERDA and a number of interagency programs in the 7-county North Country region.
Opportunities for Businesses and Nonprofits
Our Clean Energy Team works closely with staff from other ANCA programs and regional partner organizations to provide support for businesses and nonprofits who wish to adopt clean energy upgrades and improvements for cleaner, more efficient buildings and infrastructure.
Residential Energy Programs
ANCA’s Clean Energy Team supports residents, particularly those in marginalized communities, who wish to implement clean energy upgrades and improvements for cleaner, more efficient buildings and infrastructure.
Clean Transportation Initiative
ANCA is working with partners to capture and drive opportunities to increase both EV adoption and charging station infrastructure build out. We aim to increase visibility, support, and funding for the rapid transition to clean transportation across the region for passenger, mass transit, and commercial vehicles.
Regional Clean Energy Hub
ANCA manages NYSERDA’s Regional Clean Energy Hub in New York’s North Country. This new program is designed to consolidate services and create a hub of knowledge and technical support for existing NYSERDA initiatives.
