From Our Partners

“My first experience with New Energy Cities was a two day workshop to identify a roadmap and action plan for developing a clean, efficient energy system over a 20 year period for the City of Edmonds WA. I found their process to be nothing short of remarkable; they presented in a professional manner and with actionable goals.”
