Solar Power

Solar power plays a critical role in transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy while reducing electricity costs and creating jobs. New Yorkers for Clean Power (NYCP) works to accelerate the adoption of solar by individuals, non-profits, businesses, and municipalities. Our work includes:

  • Working to achieve the goal of Million Solar Strong NY to double NY-Sun’s 3GW solar. In a recent victory, Governor Cuomo committed to 6GW of solar-enough local solar to power a million homes by 2025 .
  • Working with PowerMarket and other renewable energy developers to subscribe people to community solar projects so that they can save money on their electric bill while supporting local clean energy.
  • Helping businesses and organizations reduce greenhouse gas emissions with energy retrofits, solar or other actions that will both save money and reduce their carbon footprint with the Ulster County Green Business Challenge.
