The Million Solar Strong New York Campaign is organizing events across the state and calling on Governor Cuomo to commit to enough distributed solar to power one million new homes with solar by 2023, including at least 100,000 low-income homes. We are also calling on the state to implement the right policies and programs that will support solar access to all people, ensure an equitable transition and will pave the path to a million solar homes by 2023.
