The Committee on Energy and Economic Development initiates and monitors public policy and programs that promote a strong economy in the County. In addition, the Committee reviews all public policies that affect Westchester County's energy needs, rate of consumption and cost to taxpayers, and takes steps to improve how we go about reducing Westchester's energy needs through public education and by either proposing legislation or working with the County administration on energy initiatives. The Committee works with the state on legislation pertaining to the supply of electricity and natural gas, establishment of electric rates, state-wide energy policy, energy conservation, nuclear power (such as issues related to the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plants), and energy tax credits.

The Committee works jointly with other committees, especially the Environment Committee, County Departments, the Westchester environmental community and the energy industry on energy conservation initiatives.
