We are so proud to be New Yorkers! Thank you Governor Cuomo for putting the people of New York and their interests above the interests of the gas industry.

After looking at the science on fracking, the Acting Commissioner of Health, Howard Zucker concluded what residents across New York have been saying for years.  When advising the Governor, Zucker stated "Would I live in a community that would allow fracking? The answer is no."

STSWreduced.jpgCatskill Mountainkeeper is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a grant of $1.8 million from the State of New York to lead a collaborative project to increase energy conservation and solar penetration in the Southern Tier and Mid-Hudson regions.  Our lead partners in this project are the Binghamton Regional Sustainability Coalition, Sustainable Hudson Valley, and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County, each of which brings extensive experience in conservation, renewable energy promotion and sustainable community development.  The funding will come from Phase II of the Cleaner, Greener Communities (CGC) Program, within the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), and is being awarded through Round IV of Governor Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) initiative.
