President Trump may have shamefully withdrawn the United States from the Paris Climate Accord, but here in New Rochelle, we will continue to do our part to promote a sustainable future.

We’re delivering 100% renewable power to every electricity consumer through community choice aggregation.  We’re replacing all of our street lights with energy efficient LEDs.  We’re adding electric charging stations to our municipal garages.  We’re working to make our city more pedestrian and bike friendly.  And, contrary to the President’s specious claims, we’re doing it all while saving money and building a more vibrant local economy.

The Trump Administration’s climate denial is a serious blow to the world’s interests — no doubt about it — but many state, county, and local governments are ready to step up and fill the leadership vacuum.
