Governor Cuomo: Second Round of NYS Solarize Campaign Yields 850 Solar Projects
New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo reported that 850 solar projects have been installed or are in development across the state through the second round of Solarize campaigns. A component of the NY-Sun Initiative, the Solarize campaigns, launched by the Governor in December 2014, are organized locally. The program supports the state’s Clean Energy Standard, requiring that 50 percent of New York’s electricity come from renewable sources by 2030. “New York continues to see unprecedented growth in the solar energy industry across the state, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, increasing jobs, and driving economic growth,” Governor Cuomo said in making the announcement. “By helping residents and businesses install solar energy panels, we are reducing costs for consumers and fueling the clean energy economy in New York for years to come.” Click here to read more.
