Join the Movement
Let’s transform our energy future. We welcome collaborators, participants, supporters, and donors. It will take all of us to build the equitable and renewable energy system we need.
From humble beginnings a decade ago, AGREE has grown to be a major force in New York’s energy landscape, advocating for an equitable transition to a renewable energy-based economy where everyone can thrive in harmony with Earth’s ecosystems. We work from the hands-on house by house level to utility rate cases and statewide policy.
Renewable Heat Now
Through our Renewable Heat Now Campaign, we work with organizations across NY to raise awareness about how we can convert from fossil fuel heating to geothermal heat pumps, thermal energy networks, and cold climate heat pumps.
Utility Rate Cases
Utilities collect billions of dollars every year for the electricity grid, pipelines, and energy efficiency programs. Through our rate case trainings and interventions we advocate for affordable energy bills, improved energy efficiency, and alternatives to gas investments.
HeatSmart CNY is our community campaign to help you reduce or eliminate your use of fossil fuels for heating and cooling. Learn about your options and about the many programs available to help pay for energy efficiency upgrades and electric heat pumps.
