New York State Aims To Drive Solar Industry

In his 2013 State of the State Address, delivered on January 9, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo outlined a comprehensive plan to make the region “the leader in the clean tech economy “—including expansion of the NY-Sun Initiative, a dynamic public-private partnership designed to drive solar industry growth and to make solar installations more affordable for all New Yorkers.

Launched last year, NY-Sun is intended to quadruple the amount of customer-sited solar in New York by 2015. This initiative is aimed at providing additional certainty to solar developers, attracting significant private investment in solar photovoltaic systems, developing a robust solar power industry in New York, improving the reliability of the electric grid, and reducing air pollution. Now, Cuomo has put forward a plan to expand the NY-Sun solar job initiative at a rate of $150 million annually for 10 years in order to increase solar panel installations by homeowners and businesses.
