New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo delivered his State of the State address in Albany today, reiterating his call for New York to get 50 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030 and detailing how the state will get there.
Curtis Fisher, regional executive director of the National Wildlife Federation’s Northeast Regional Center, said today:
“For the first time today, a New York governor highlighted the important role offshore wind power must play in its energy future. It was one of a series of significant steps outlined by Gov. Cuomo today toward achieving his goal of getting 50 percent of New York’s power from clean, renewable energy by 2030. In a state with abundant wind and solar resources, that’s not just smart energy policy, it’s a sound plan for local jobs, economic growth, and a cleaner environment. We support Gov. Cuomo’s bold leadership and will continue urging New York to set a bold, clear target for wildlife-friendly offshore wind energy.”
