SHARE seeks to convert the Capitol complex (Capitol, Empire State Plaza, and other nearby state facilities) to 100 percent renewable energy. In addition to reducing greenhouse gas and other emissions, locally and as a shining example of what needs to be done throughout the state, this transition will finally address a major environmental injustice in Albany's Sheridan Hollow neighborhood.

CASE (Community Advocates for a Sustainable Environment) was formed in February of 2018.

When the company withdrew its application in May of 2016, SNYFGP decided to continue to help other area fights against fossil fuel infrastructure and to create CASE to promote Renewable Energy.
