The New York State Energy Research Development Authority (NYSERDA), the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), and the Office of New York Attorney General (OAG), will hold a public meeting to discuss the dedication of funds from the settlement of a lawsuit with the Lafarge North America, Inc. cement plant.

NYSERDA will use these funds to carry out one or more environmentally beneficial projects authorized by the OAG and DEC that pertain to energy efficiency and/or the reduction of air pollution. Presentations will be given by NYSERDA on the potential projects and will include information on the requirements for participation. In addition, NYSERDA will provide a brief presentation regarding programs offered outside of the environmental benefit projects funded by the settlement of the lawsuit.
