The Village of Sodus has been awarded a $50,000 Grant as a result of its designation as a Clean Energy Community (CEC). The designation was earned by the village for developing a series of cost saving initiatives that will make the village more energy efficient in the future. The Clean Energy Community (CEC) is administered by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) under the regional guidance of Genesee/Finger Lakes Regional Development Authority.
The village will use the $50, 000 to upgrade the Sodus Municipal Building primarily through the installation of high R value insulation and a high efficiency HVAC system. The grant is a culmination of five years of work to save tax payer dollars while preparing for the future challenges of climate change. Since 2014, when the village passed a resolution accepting the NYS Climate Smart Community Pledge, it has built a foundation for energy innovation.
The Sodus Climate Smart Community Task Force was formed in June 2015 to oversee the program and make cost savings and energy reduction recommendations to the village and town.
The Sodus CSC Task Force meets in the Sodus Municipal Building in the basement firefighter’s meeting room (Mill Street, Sodus, NY).
Meetings are at 6pm on the following 2019 dates:
The Clean Energy Community of Sodus, NY invites you to seek further information about their Climate Smart Initiatives by calling village mayor, David Englert at the Village of Sodus office.
