About the Program
Can Long Island meet 100 percent of its electricity needs from renewable energy?
In short: Yes
The surprising answer comes from the Long Island Clean Electricity Vision (CEV) — a bold, visionary study commissioned by Renewable Energy Long Island (reLI) and member organizations of the Long Island Clean Energy Roundtable. The 2012 analysis, performed by Synapse Energy Economics, using cautious and often conservative assumptions, concludes that a clean energy transition could take place within two decades, at relatively modest cost and with significant benefits.
Renewable Energy Long Island, a not-for-profit organization providing clean energy information to consumers, businesses, and policy makers and advocating for a sustainable energy future.
Gordian Raacke, executive director, lives in a super-insulated solar-heated home in East Hampton that generates 100% of its annual electricity consumption from solar panels.
Then, join us for drinks and networking.
