Energy Advisory Panel

Bedford Climate Action Plan

Climate Action Plan June 2014 Progress Report

In 2007, the Town Board of Bedford established the Bedford Energy Advisory Panel (BEAP) and committed to reducing the Town’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 20% by 2020.  In 18 months, BEAP completed a town-wide GHG inventory and developed a Climate Action Plan (CAP) to serve as a blueprint for meeting the Town’s 20% GHG emission reduction target by 2020.

The CAP includes over 70 projects covering a broad range of activities from energy efficiency to waste/recycling, transportation, water/land use and food/agriculture that will achieve the goal of 20% reduction in GHG emissions by 2020. In February, 2010, the Town Board of Bedford unanimously adopted and appended the CAP to the Bedford Comprehensive Plan, making Bedford the first town in New York State to link a climate action plan to a Comprehensive Plan.
