Installing solar on and HVAC systems within schools will help us move towards equitable, healthy communities for our students and teachers, will lower our city’s emissions, and will create good green jobs for our communities. Now is the time to invest in these solutions and move towards an Equitable Recovery for New York City. 

In this new report, Climate Works for All has calculated that $1.5 billion is needed to install solar and HVAC systems in every public school in NYC. The Department of Citywide Administrative Services currently has $3.8 billion in funding for city energy efficiency upgrades. Mayor de Blasio must begin the work of dispersing this funding towards solar and HVAC systems in New York City public schools, and our next Mayor must continue this legacy of investment during their administration. 

Join us in demanding Mayor de Blasio end his term fighting for our communities by building Green, Healthy Schools now!

A diverse group of kids, citizens, activists, council members, bus drivers and advocacy groups have been asking for Electric School Buses for over twenty years, but now that the legislation (Intro 455) finally has enough votes to pass Speaker Corey Johnson is ignoring our calls for a vote on it!

Join with us to demand that Speaker Johnson schedule Intro 455 for a vote and let’s force the city to make good on the promise to make ALL school buses electric by 2040 – not just the small percentage of buses the city is planning to operate!
