Aug 13, 2019 7:28 pm
The Columbia Paper reports that Gallatin is the latest local municipality to get a "Clean Energy Community" designation. That means it has taken at least four high-impact clean energy actions, and is now eligible for additional state grants. Local governments receiving the designation can apply for Lafarge Mitigation Funds, made available through the settlement of a lawsuit by the state against Lafarge North America, Inc. Lafarge has a cement plant in Ravena, in southern Albany County. Other local communities that are Clean Energy Communities include the Towns of Canaan, Chatham, Kinderhook, Austerlitz, Hillsdale, Ancram, Ghent, Greenville, Catskill, the city of Hudson, and the village of Philmont.
