It is the policy of the Village/Town of Mount Kisco to achieve energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, mitigate the effect of global climate change, and advance a clean energy economy for the benefit of our environment and all residents of our community.

The Mount Kisco Climate Smart Communities Task Force (formerly the Mount Kisco Energy Advisory Panel) was established by resolution of the Board of Trustees of the Village/Town of Mount Kisco on March 2, 2020 and charged with developing  a strategy and work plan for establishing a baseline for the Village's current emissions, for recommending reduction targets, for identifying new strategies for reducing emissions and improving energy efficiency, for recommending ways in which these strategies can be incorporated into the Village's development and planning efforts, and helping the Village to achieve the highest levels of New York State Climate Smart Communities Certification.
