Net-Zero Cities: Westchester County Clean Energy Fair

On Saturday, May 13th, Climate Now in partnership with Rye Sustainability, hosted the inaugural Net Zero Cities: Westchester County at Rye Middle School.  Presented by Dandelion Geothermal, the clean energy fair convened a diverse group of local stakeholders, educators, small business owners and community leaders to educate area residents about Westchester County’s path to Net-Zero.  Decarbonization can only be accomplished through community engagement and participation; this event shared the necessary steps on how individuals and families can help achieve this goal.
