Citizens For Local Power
CITIZENS FOR LOCAL POWER is a community-based organization working to transform energy policy and practice in the Mid-Hudson Valley as a way to fight climate change, grow the local economy, and increase resilience. Combining advocacy, research, public education, program development, and coalition-building, CLP is uniquely placed to accomplish our mission of creating a locally-based green energy economy.
CLP WORKS ACROSS PARTY LINES with municipalities, elected officials, environmental and energy NGOs, local media, labor, and the public. We inform, mobilize, and support efforts to advance energy policies and implement down-to-earth, practical projects that reduce energy consumption and expand renewable generation. We care a lot about accurate, in-depth research and fact-checking, democratic control, and the involvement and protection of vulnerable groups.
