Additionally, Solar One has a Community Campaigns Coordinator under the CECP program who works closely with neighborhood-based organizations, borough presidents, and community boards to launch and run clean energy campaigns.

CECP on Long Island
On Long Island, Solar One’s Partner, Cameron Engineering works with Long Island municipal leaders to secure commitments to complete High Impact Actions to reduce emissions, and will continue to team with its current Clean Energy Communities partners, the Sustainability Institute at Molloy College and the Community Development Corporation of Long Island (CDCLI) to achieve a broader reach, including in disadvantaged communities.
Local governments are critical partners in achieving a new energy vision for New York State. As such, municipal leaders play a critical role in affecting energy choices in their communities, both in terms of government operations, and also across homes, businesses, and community institutions.
