Office of Sustainable Energy

The Sullivan County Office of Sustainable Energy (OSE) works to develop cost effective projects, policies and practices that make County operations and our surrounding community more sustainable, resilient, healthy, energy efficient and environmentally responsible. The OSE works to achieve these goals in County operations and throughout the community by providing research, analysis, strategies, informational outreach and project support on a range of issues relating to sustainability, and by working in close coordination with numerous County departments, local and state agencies and community organizations to maximize the resources available to the County and its residents.

In 2017, Sullivan County achieved certification as a Climate Smart Community by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and was officially designated a Clean Energy Community by the NYS Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). The Office of Sustainable Energy works to advance the County’s status as a certified Climate Smart Community and assists our towns and villages as they pursue efforts to improve energy efficiency, install and promote renewable energy, and prepare their communities for local impacts of climate change.
