Clean Energy Communities Program opens new opportunities for municipalities across New York State to bring energy efficiency and renewable energy, actions, guidance, funding, and recognition to communities.
The new CEC program provides the tools and resources you need to take your community to the next level, with new High Impact Action items and increased access to grant funding.

The Mohawk Valley Economic Development District, Inc. works with communities, villages, towns, cities and counties all across the region. MVEDD serves Fulton, Herkimer, Montgomery, Oneida, Otsego, and Schoharie Counties.
Each high-impact action is worth points that communities collect upon completion of the action. To receive points for completing high-impact actions, you must submit documentation that verifies all requirements have been met. The points you earn count toward unlocking access to point-based grant funding. Certain high-impact energy actions are eligible for additional Action Grants. You must complete four high impact actions to be designated as a Clean Energy Community.
This scorecard shows your community’s accomplishments, the high impact actions your community is undertaking, and how your efforts compare to others in your region and across New York State.
