14nov9:30 am2:00 pmTell the PSC: Lack of action is climate change denial! - Albany

Event Details

NY URGENTLY needs a plan for transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy and renewable heat – now! To hold the agency responsible for shaping NY’s energy future (the Public Service Commission) accountable, we must be in the Room Where It Happens (Agency Building 3, 19th Floor Boardroom).

Join the Renewable Heat Now campaign and a growing number of allies as we return to Albany on Thursday, November 14 for the PSC meeting.

Join us to witness what the Commissioners say in the 19th Floor Boardroom. Will the PSC finally issue the long-awaited energy efficiency order? Will we again hear climate change denial from the commissioners? Will the PSC acknowledge that the uncertainty of not having a plan thwarts our efforts to promote energy efficiency and renewable heat and emboldens fossil fuel infrastructure buildout? On November 14 we will again gather in Agency Building 3 in 19th Floor Boardroom at 9:30am for the 10:30 meeting. Then we will hold a 1:30pm press conference in Legislative Office Building Room 130 – our reaction to the what was (or wasn’t) discussed in the Public Service Commission meeting.

Last month’s meeting was an amazing, shocking, and unifying experience. As we held space in the PSC boardroom, we were elated to hear commission members mention heat pumps; and we were astounded to hear them repeat gas industry and climate denial myths. Our press conference with allies & legislators informed the media & the public about how decisions made at the PSC impact the people of New York (

Press conference hosted by Renewable Heat Now at 1:30pm in the LCA Pressroom: Legislative Office Building (LOB) Room 130.

(There will probably be time to grab lunch in the Concourse before the press conference and bring it with you to LOB Room 130. We will bring seltzer, fruit & granola bars.)

The world is watching what New York will do. The time to act is NOW. Let’s make sure NYS regulators know we are watching them and that we hold them accountable for serving the PUBLIC’s interest and protecting the planet – not protecting the utilities’ bottom line.
