Building a #SolarStrongNY

We’re calling on New York’s elected leaders to resist the Trump Administration’s attacks on progress and build a Million #SolarStrongNY.

Last year we rallied at the Capitol with New Yorkers across the state. Gov. Cuomo started 2019 with a bold new solar goal. Now it’s time for lawmakers to codify it into law and achieve a brighter clean energy future.

Join the movement! Raise your voice for a Million Solar Strong New York.

 

The Million Solar Strong New York Campaign is organizing events across the state and calling on New York lawmakers to codify Gov. Cuomo’s solar goal of 6 GW into law, commiting to enough distributed solar to power one million new homes with solar by 2025, with the right policies and programs to ensure at least 250,000 households in low-to-moderate income and frontline communities have access to solar as part of an equitable clean energy transition for New York.

A million homes powered by solar will create local jobs, save New Yorkers on utility bills, increase economic investment, cut harmful air pollution, and accelerate an equitable transition to our clean energy future. This is the most important decision elected leaders can make to protect our growing local solar industry this year — and it’s the right choice for New York.

Co-sponsors for the Rally for a Million Solar Strong New York included: Vote Solar, NYSEIA, SEIA, Acadia Center, ACE NY, NRDC, New Yorkers for Clean Power, NYLPI, Pace Energy and Climate Center, Earth Day Initiative, Environment New York and the Coalition for Community Solar Access.
