Tompkins County Energy Roadmap Accepted by Legislature

The Tompkins County Energy Roadmap was unanimously accepted by the Legislature in April.

The Roadmap was developed to help guide energy-related decision making. It assesses the potential of various local renewable energy sources to power the community, as well as the role that energy efficiency can play in reducing energy demand. The Roadmap also identifies scenarios for meeting greenhouse gas emissions reductions goals.

The Energy Roadmap was one of ten local measures identified in the 2020 Energy Strategy to help prepare the community to achieve its stated greenhouse gas emissions goals of 80% reduction in emissions over 2008 levels by 2050. The Roadmap puts those assessments into the context of the overall community energy picture today and projected in 2050 to identify scenarios for how both energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions goals can be met.
