What Are Regional Clean Energy Hubs?
New York State is embarking on a transition to an inclusive, clean energy powered economy. All residents, businesses and communities across the State will have access to new opportunities to benefit from this transition including clean energy careers, home improvements, even rebates for businesses and personal transportation. But there’s a lot of information out there, and people may not know where to start.
To help New Yorkers access and navigate these opportunities, NYSERDA created the Regional Clean Energy Hubs. Clean Energy Hubs connect people to the clean energy economy.
What does a Regional Clean Energy Hub do?
Your Hub is a team of trusted, knowledgeable, community-based organizations in and from the North Country region. They have experience with clean energy, energy efficiency, workforce and economic development, education, health, and housing.
Hubs help and provide information to individuals, small businesses, and affordable housing owners about the benefits of the clean energy economy, ways to reduce energy use and costs, and how to make more informed energy decisions.
A Hub can:
- Describe the “clean energy economy” and what it means for communities
- Assist with accessing job training and employment in the clean energy sector
- Discuss a home energy assessment and why it would be useful
- Help someone fill out an application for a free home-energy assessment
- Show what types of energy incentives a person or business may qualify for
- Share information about electric vehicles (EV), charging stations, even help someone file an EV rebate
- Find a qualified contractor to perform clean energy upgrades
- Locate a community solar program and help residents and businesses sign up for it
- And more!
