Energy Smart Tompkins includes expanding the use of renewables

Energy Smart Tompkins

Energy Smart Tompkins (EST) was created by NYSEG in order to develop and test the technologies, markets, and choices that will help advance clean energy use in Tompkins County. This initiative aligns with New York’s Reforming the Energy Vision comprehensive energy strategy which mandates that, by 2030, 50 percent of New York’s energy be generated by renewable sources. 

The EST also aligns with Tompkins County's Energy Roadmap which aims to reach a minimum 80 percent greenhouse gas reduction from 2008 levels by 2050, and reduce reliance on fossil fuels across all sectors. Tompkins County Planning Department explains more about the roadmap in this presentation.
