Leadership, Policies and Goals
In 2014, the East Hampton Town Board adopted a policy of working to meet 100 percent of annual community-wide energy consumption in all sectors (electricity, heating, and transportation) with renewable energy sources by 2030, becoming the first municipality in NYS to adopt such progressive energy sustainability goals. http://ehamptonny.gov/382/Energy-Sustainability
In 2021, the Town declared that a climate and ecological emergency exists and resolved to make climate mitigation and the elimination of greenhouse gas emissions a guiding principle and objective of all municipal operations and decisions. http://ehamptonny.gov/DocumentCenter/View/8256/Resolution-Endorsing-the-Declaration-of-a-Climate-Emergency-Town-of-East-Hampton A Fleet Efficiency Policy adopted in 2020 outlines the commitment to the use of Electric Vehicles (EV) for the town’s vehicle fleet.
Our Energize East Hampton program, at https://energizeeh.org/, connects residents and business owners with programs that offer energy and money-saving options while helping to achieve the Town’s 100-percent renewable energy goal.
The Town has been designated a NYS Climate Smart Community,( http://ehamptonny.gov/612/Climate-Smart-Communities) as well as a Clean Energy Community (http://ehamptonny.gov/557/Clean-Energy-Communities).
