A letter on the Clean Energy Standard from Trustee Brian Pugh


To The Editor:

Thank you to the League of Women Voters for your informative “hot topic” breakfast on the Clean Energy Standard, the proposal to generate 50% of NY’s electricity from renewable sources by 2030, and to our hosts, the Croton Deli.

Thank you also to the Croton residents, including Trustee Ann Gallelli, who attended the Public Service Commission’s hearing at the Town of Cortlandt’s Morabito Center to learn about the Clean Energy Standard and share your views. The PSC held this additional hearing, the only one in Westchester, following a letter from the Village of Croton requesting that a hearing be held in our county.

Finally, I hope that property owners interested in protecting the environment and saving on their energy bills attend the Energy Coach Talk at the Croton Free Library on Thursday, June 23rd at 7:00 pm. This presentation organized by Energize Croton will feature certified energy expert Norm Jen, who will help homeowners to understand how their homes leak energy, how they can fix them—and how to take advantage of state incentives to pay for these improvements.

While our state works to green its energy supply, let’s work together to reduce what we use.


Trustee Brian Pugh
