New York State’s leadership on solar energy

More Solar Funding For New York State, Renewable Energy News, 24 Dec 13 Support for solar in New York State received a healthy boost last week, with an additional USD $108 million in funding announced for residential and commercial solar energy projectsStatue-of-Liberty-solar.

The extra cash will be provided over the next two years under the NY-Sun initiative. “Solar power is critical to making our environment healthier and our energy system more resilient,” said New York governor, Andrew M. Cuomo. “The funding approved today will expand the use of clean, renewable power across New York State and ensure we continue to be a national leader in solar energy.”

Governor Cuomo launched the NY-Sun initiative last year and since its inception, 299 megawatts of solar photovoltaic capacity has been installed or is under development in the state. More solar has been installed in New York State since NY-Sun kicked off than had been installed in the entire prior decade.  ….

Also available is the $30 million New York Sun Competitive Photovoltaic (PV) Program for systems larger than 200kW and various other rebates and incentives; including a feed in tariff program for residents of Long Island.
