Solar energy can displace fossil-fueled power, avoiding their harmful emissions. New York State currently gets only 28% of its electricity from clean, renewable resources like solar, wind and hydro-power.
Similar solar and wind projects are being proposed throughout the State.

New York's Clean Energy Standard mandates that 50% of New York's electricity come from renewable energy sources - such as solar power - by 2030.
The State Energy Plan calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions 40% by 2030.
