The Build Public Renewables Act would create >35,000 good jobs building the renewables and retrofits we need to get NY to 100% renewable energy.
Sign-on Support for 2021 Bills
Read and sign the letter to support the Public Power NY campaign and its two Public Power bills, which are instrumental to creating an energy system that is democratic, accountable, just, and renewable.
Who We Are
The Public Power NY Coalition is a statewide movement of community and advocacy organizations fighting for an environmentally sustainable energy system that’s also racially, socially, and economically just. We believe energy and a habitable planet are human rights.
Why Public Power
We can’t fix greed. For-profit, private corporations answer to Wall Street investors, and therefore profit, and so cannot deliver either an effective or a just plan to address the urgent challenges of the climate crisis. A democratically accountable and publicly-owned energy system gives us the leverage to control what kind of power goes into it.
The Public Power NY Statewide coalition will be introducing two bills this year to move New York State to the 100% renewable, democratically controlled, publicly owned energy system we need in order to lead the nation on climate.
