Everyone Wins: State-Level Programs That Spur Local Clean Energy Action

Fact Sheet
June 04, 2019

States, cities, and towns are stepping forward in greater numbers to make climate and clean energy policy commitments, which are now more important than ever, given federal inaction and rollbacks. However, many communities do not have the technical capacity, staff, or resources to achieve their climate goals and/or pursue various clean energy opportunities on their own. Statewide programs can fill those gaps, offering technical, financial, and logistical support to local communities looking to encourage renewable energy, increase energy efficiency, and support clean transportation options.
