Walk the Talk on Climate @ Albany
Apr 23 all-day

RSVP HERE FOR LONG ISLAND BUSES

On April 23rd, we will march on the State Capitol to tell Governor Cuomo we don’t want more talk, we demand 3 bold actions to fight climate change, create good jobs, and ensure justice for all:

*Stop all fracking infrastructure projects
*Move to 100% renewable energy
*Make corporate polluters pay

Governor Cuomo says New York is a “leader” on climate change; that it is “gross negligence” not to address climate change; and that he’s taken “decisive action”. In reality, the level of New York’s climate pollution is virtually unchanged since he took office in 2011. Only 3% of New York’s electricity comes from wind and solar. And New York is failing to effectively cut the almost 80% of our climate pollution from cars and trucks, buildings and other sources other than the electric grid.

Join us for this historical action with New Yorkers from all over the state to say #CuomoWalkTheTalk and get New York #OffFossilFuels. This is will be the largest climate rally ever directed at Cuomo in Albany. Come fired up and get ready to raise your voice!

How to Go Solar For Your Nonprofit or House of Worship @ Bethany Presbyterian Church

How to Go Solar For Your Nonprofit or House of Worship @ Bethany Presbyterian Church

Please join this upcoming community event with PowerUp Solar and Suffolk County to learn about how your nonprofit can save thousands by going solar. This is the second leg of our campaign after successfully bringing our solution to three churches on Long Island.

PowerUp Solar Long Island believes that solar energy must be accessible for everyone. We are a partnership between the Long Island Progressive Coalition and Resonant Energy to bring 400 kW+ of nonprofit solar to Long Island in 2018 as a part of the Department of Energy SunShot Initiative: Solar In Your Community Challenge.

PowerUp Solar is designed to reduce the cost of solar for nonprofits by:

  • Bundling multiple projects to bid them out collectively
  • Making use of tax credits through third-party financing
  • Offering loan options to avoid upfront costs

*Utilizing low-interest financing, organizations can also undergo roof improvements through this process.

By combining these strategies, we can reduce the cost of solar for nonprofits up to 40%. PowerUp makes it simple for your organization to realize the benefits of solar power.

Harnessing the power of the sun allows organizations to reduce not only their environmental impact but also overhead costs, so they can utilize their resources to better serve communities.

For any questions, please reach out to Ryan Madden, Sustainability Organizer with the Long Island Progressive Coalition at rmadden@lipc.org.
