“Green the Grid and Electrify Everything”

Presented by: Andrew Pezzullo, Clean Power Fellow with New Yorkers for Clean Power

What will it take to transition NY’s economy to renewables? What is needed for NY’s electric grid to be powered with renewable sources? How do we decarbonize our buildings and transportation so they are running off that renewable electricity? Join us to find out.

After graduating college, Andrew began his professional career as an organic farmer in the Hudson Valley and has worked at multiple farm operations across the region.  He was part of the first class of the Hudson Valley Farm Hub’s professional farmer training program, leaving after 2 years to start his own farm operation. After 8 years in the agriculture field, Andrew transitioned back into grassroots organizing around climate and energy policy at the state level with Food & Water Watch and now with NYCP!
