Energy Smart, Climate Smart or Sustainable Smart?

These terms are being used to recognize smart actions to achieve certain goals. The goal of sustainability is critical for us to be energy independent, help deal with climate change, create local economic development and improve health of the residents. This is the reason the all inclusive term of " Sustainable Smart" community makes more sense to use.

With this logic I used it in a Municipal conference on April 16th, at Blue Mountain Lake arranged by the Syracuse based Environmental Finance Center. About 25 Village Mayors and Town Supervisors were present to learn about how to manage the municipal infrastructure and save money. Many Green ideas were presented as solutions for the rising cost of government operations.
