We are so proud to announce our
Together We Shine: Community Solar Campaign Launch Event
No sun? No roof? No Rebates?… No Problem!!
Can we build a community solar project?
Can we put together people who couldn’t otherwise get solar, with their own solar panels somewhere else? We’re going to find out and do it!
In light of inaction to address climate change, and with the local change to off shore wind 7-10 years away, all of us must act together now to displace fossil fuels’ pollution, clean our communities, and spearhead the coming renewable energy economy that benefits everyone.
Tonight, we put the power of solar in everyone’s hands!
off site / shared solar is here!
For the first time on Long Island, residents, businesses, organizations and others don’t need a roof, sun, or tax incentives to make their own low cost solar energy. Find out how it will work, how we can come together and put the power of the sun in everyone’s hands.
Yes, we can get 100% renewable energy for 100% of the people- join us at tonight’s debut event.
Join us tonight 6/26/17 @ 7pm at Long Beach Library.

6/19 Renewables with Justice: Resource Plan Prep
Prepare your testimony to speak or submit your thoughts at public hearings on LIPA and PSEG’s “Integrated Resource Plan” on June 21 in Smithtown, and June 22 in Mineola, defining our electricity grid for the next 10-20 years.
Become one renewable island, with renewables, off shore wind, and justice for all.
LIPA and PSEG are poised to go with renewables and not build the 5 billion dollars in new shale gas power plants that were proposed… this is pretty huge!
This week’s hearings are crucial! We would love to have you come down Wednesday June 21 or Thursday June 22 for the LIPA and PSEG “Integrated Resource Plan” (IRP), public hearings on the next decade of our electricity system. Our future needs you there!
We need as many people as possible at the 6/21 1PM hearing in Smithtown, where the media will be. We are also focusing on the 6/22 evening session in Mineola (Details on all is Below)
Here is our quote for the press release:
“As a triumph in the fight against climate change and a bold move to economic and efficient renewables, we applaud the Integrated Resource Plan” said George Povall, Director of All Our Energy. “Saving billions of dollars in unnecessary fossil fuel plants, and avoiding their pollution is just smart, and LIPA should invest now in even more cost conscious, climate saving off shore wind to make that a reality.”
What a great turnout, at a beautiful location, during a historic moment at the Long Island Climate Resistance Summit! So many new friends and such an inspiring day!
A special THANK YOU goes out to our volunteers – Ann, Karen, Joanne, Gary, and Susan (pictured here with me) for helping make it such a success!! Thank you to all who attended, and to our partner organizations who made the day such a success. We met so many new people we know are ready to take action to fight climate change on Long Island.
Thanks to all who took part in our discussion and had so many great questions and answers at our Community Solar workshop.
It aint godzilla, it’s the Point Lookout wind turbine….
After we went to the LIPA Board of Trustees to push for off shore wind with our allies, some of our volunteers visited the Town Of Hempstead Energy Park, to check out their 156 ft tall, 100kw wind turbine that makes enough power for 80 homes, plus their 100kw solar farm and their hydrogen energy storage system. What an interesting day, thanks to Tara Schneider-Moran at Town of Hempstead. We will be keeping in touch and will return again.
