Community Energy Engagement Program

Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County has contracted with NYSERDA to help residents and businesses reduce their energy costs and make informed energy decisions with the Community Energy Engagement Program (CEEP).  Community Energy Advisors (CEAs) are here to help guide you through the process of making your home safer, more comfortable and help you save money on your energy bills through energy programs and projects.  CEAs can connect you to resources, tools & programs available in your community that can help you save energy and money and be more comfortable in your home.

They offer free, one-on-one appointments to discuss energy options. Please click here to learn more about CEEP.
