Due to a pro-renewables government

Solar power in New York increased more than 1,000% from December 2011 to December 2017. This leveraged more than $2.8 billion in private investment into New York’s growing clean energy economy.

Solar will be vital to help Governor Cuomo’s mandate for half of all electricity consumed to come from renewable energy sources by 2030. If achievable, this will cement New York as one of the national leaders in clean energy growth.

“Solar is a vital part of this state’s clean energy future and we have experienced unprecedented growth in this new sector,” Governor Cuomo said. “We will continue to support the development of solar, helping to spur economic growth, creating new jobs and helping to build a cleaner, greener and more sustainable New York for all.”
