We need your help to create a CCA in the mid-Hudson Valley. 
Please learn more about CCAs and how you can get involved.

learn about ccas

The first pilot CCA in Westchester County saved homeowners millions of dollars while moving 77,000 households into a 100% renewable option.  Learn why John Kelly of the Perfect Power Institute called CCAs the “number one tool this country has to fight climate change”.

ATTEND A public meeting

As interested municipalities join the process, they’ll have to hold public hearings and pass a local law to authorize a CCA in your community.  Attend public hearings to learn more about CCAs and the local process in your community.

 

build a coalition

A CCA will save homeowners and small businesses money while increasing renewable energy use.  If you’re a member of a community organization representing neighbors, small business owners, or environmentalists, ask if you’re organization will sign a statement of support.

We continue to work with innovative municipal leaders to bring CCAs to the mid-Hudson Valley.  Please get the FAQs about how a CCA works and what benefits it can provide to your community.

 

 

The Ecological Citizen's Project on Longhaul Farm is a partner organization to Renewable Highlands.  We work to grow citizen-led campaigns to produce a more just, healthy and sustainable way-of-life.
