Haylee Ferinton is lives her passion as Clean Energy Communities Coordinator at the Genesee/Finger Lakes Regional Planning Council. Through her work, you can find her anywhere from analyzing the utility load for a highway barn to crafting local land use laws for large scale renewables, and all the LEDs and EV charging stations in between. Haylee has serves as professional mentor for graduate students from Columbia and Cornell Universities, sharing her inspiration of assisting communities in actualizing their clean energy visions. Her current ZEV work features a keynote speech at a regional seminar and a Genesee-Finger Lakes Regional Fleet Electrification Study.
Haylee has a knack for discovering the partnerships and opportunities that are often the final missing piece to solving a solution. Currently, this includes forming partnerships with utilities and multi-state initiatives to shape how zero emission investments will be directed in the coming years into the vulnerable populations of the state. Growing up in rural America and spending her young adult life in urban environments, a wide-reaching passion and breathing duality is evident in all of Haylee's work.
