EEFA NY coalition work helps ensure that living standards for everyone are more comfortable and affordable.
WHO WE ARE
The Energy Efficiency for All New York coalition works together to ensure that all New Yorkers are able to participate in a clean and affordable energy future and access to affordable, efficient, healthy and comfortable housing. We will accomplish this by:
Supporting and aligning the work of local stakeholders and directly engaging state and city policy makers and program administrators to identify, develop, and advocate for solutions that will help New York lead the nation on energy efficiency in affordable multifamily housing;
Participating in state-level proceedings to advocate for low and moderate income communities on utility regulation, energy assistance programs, and energy efficiency efforts;
Align and engage with partners and stakeholders to educate communities, affordable housing owners and property managers about strategies for creating and preserving affordable, efficient, healthy and comfortable homes for low-moderate income New Yorkers.
The EEFA NY coalition is working together to ensure multifamily building owners, the building industry, and state partner together to bring New York’s steam heating systems into the 21st century.
The coalition is coordinated by member organizations. The current coordinator is Valerie Strauss of the Association for Energy Affordability.
