Public Power


Syracuse DSA is a member of the statewide Public Power NY Coalition. We organize educational events, write op-eds, and stand with workers and communities for affordable, safe, and renewable energy that is democratically managed.


Energy is a human right, so it a healthy, habitable planet for all! To avert the worst effects of the climate change by eliminating carbon emissions from fossil fuels, our state must rapidly take over for-profit energy utilities, power plants, and transmission lines and bring them under accountable, public, non-profit, local and democratic ownership.


The Public Power NY Statewide coalition will be introducing two bills this year to move New York State to the renewable, democratically controlled, publicly owned energy system we need for good jobs and a healthy planet.

“It is a civilizational wake-up call. A powerful message—spoken in the language of fires, floods, droughts, and extinctions—telling us that we need an entirely new economic model and a new way of sharing this planet.”
