Alliance for a Green Economy

Alliance for a Green Economy (AGREE) works for safe, affordable energy and the development of a green economy in New York State. Our goal is a prosperous, safe, and healthy New York, fulfilling the promise of conservation, energy efficiency, and safe, clean renewable energy sources to end our state’s reliance on wasteful and environmentally destructive forms of energy. The Alliance works to promote this transition to a carbon-free and nuclear-free future and educates the public about alternatives that can revitalize the economy and safeguard human health and the environment.

AGREE and our allies in the upstate National Grid rate case are working to get word out about the climate-harming and rate-increasing proposals to oppose and to build a record of public opposition in the rate case. Please take a look at the talking points and submit your comment in the rate case today!

Wednesday afternoon, by a 54-9 vote, lawmakers in the New York Senate passed the Energy Efficiency Equity and Jobs Act. Alliance for a Green Economy is now working with our allies to ensure that companion bill A.3996A, introduced by Assemblymember Pam Hunter, is passed in the New York Assembly. We need your help to get the NYS Assembly bill moving toward a vote! Please call your NYS Assemblymember to ask that they co-sponsor A.3996A. With your help, we can get this bill passed!
