Our Role in Energy Smart Community

Community Liaison

In keeping with our core principles and long-standing mission, CCE-Tompkins’ efforts in Energy Smart Community (ESC)  are focused on education, research, and collaboration with county residents, businesses, and municipalities. Using accurate information as the foundation for critical thinking allows people to engage in dialogue and informed decision-making. As an independent entity, we are in a unique position to provide information from peer-reviewed studies, our own research, and information from other communities that have embarked on similar projects. 

Collaborative Sounding Board

CCE-Tompkins receives funding from NYSEG  to help guide the NYSEG team and serve as a sounding board when it comes to decisions that affect Tompkins County residents.  Our scope of services with NYSEG includes engaging and educating residents on a range of initiatives including advanced metering, rate designs, and distributed storage products. We will be holding public meetings in the upgrade area to provide information and to hear your comments and questions.  Our goal is to bring together government, business, residential, and technical experts to collect feedback from community members and take action in strategic decision making. We serve as a point of contact for the ESC so that community members can be part of the conversation.

Subject Matter Expert

Throughout 2017, CCE-Tompkins will provide news and views from thought and practice leaders, peer-to-peer learning, links to robust resources, and more - all designed to help those who live and work in Tompkins County have access to accurate information. We provide information on a range of applicable topics and often from diverse partners who represent various sides of the issue. CCE-Tompkins will provide opportunities for educational on aspects of the ESC such as energy efficiency, renewable energy, social issues of health and equity, as well as opportunities for making your voice heard through public and organizational meetings.
