A safe, livable planet for all

Transforming our energy, saving our climate

Our current energy system is unaffordable. It’s life-threatening. And it’s driving climate change. Private utility companies continue to use fossil fuels instead of clean energy to maximize their short-term profits. We are fighting to save the future of our planet and establish real democratic ownership of our energy systems.

We’re at the point of no return.

Power back in our hands.

We are fighting for laws at the statewide level to transform our energy system. This includes putting ownership in our hands and transitioning to 100% renewable energy at the rate needed to stop climate change and protect the health of our communities.


Bills on the table.

Build Public Renewables Act
Utility Democracy Act
Climate, Jobs, and Justice Package

The Build Public Renewables Act would cut utility costs for low-income New Yorkers, and it would fight climate change direct the New York Power Authority (NYPA) to provide 100% renewable energy directly to all state and municipal leased and owned properties and transportation by 2025.


Build Public Renewables Act will set the stage for a renewable energy transformation in NY.

The Utility Democracy Act will establish the public as the owners of our energy and utilities, not greedy shareholders. The bill will transition New York to 100% renewable energy by 2040 by setting a timeline for scaling down all gas infrastructure while equally setting a timeline for scaling up renewable infrastructure to meet this new demand.


The Utility Democracy Act puts our energy back in our hands.

NY Renews’ Climate, Jobs, and Justice bill package is a legislative roadmap to rapidly decarbonize New York, make our state healthier and more equitable, ensure a just transition for workers, and help create an accessible green economy for all.
