Tompkins County is the first county in the Southern Tier to earn the designation as a “clean-energy community.”
It recognizes Tompkins County’s leadership in reducing energy use, cutting costs and “driving” clean energy in its communities, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) said in a news release issued Thursday.
Tompkins County earned the title for completing four of 10 “high-impact,” clean-energy projects that NYSERDA identified as part of the “clean-energy communities” initiative.
