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 100% 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.”
