Clearwater focuses on public awareness strategies to help citizenry and civic leaders re-think the future of energy in the Hudson River Valley. In order to reduce the regional impacts of impending climate change, we have to act aggressively, immediately, and collaboratively and work together to bring sustainable energy infrastructure info the Hudson Valley.
Clean Energy is practical, available, and includes renewable sources such as wind and solar that could replace fossil fuels, and at the same time, support new economic growth and jobs in a green sustainable economy.Transitioning to clean energy is our region’s biggest economic development opportunity. Wind and solar projects, new transmission lines and retrofits are powerful creators of skilled, local jobs and powerful attractors of investment.
