State Public Service Commission approves measure to procure half of New York’s power from renewable energy resources by 2030.
For Immediate Release – August 2, 2016
Washington, D.C. – The American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) applauds the state of New York and the New York Public Service Commission (PSC) for its just-approved energy policy to procure 50 percent of all electricity from renewable energy resources by 2030.
“We applaud New York for its continuing leadership in promoting the transition to a renewable energy economy,” said Greg Wetstone, President and CEO of ACORE. “New York’s track record with the innovative REV program inspires confidence that the state can successfully meet its renewable energy goals, and with wind and solar costs at record-breaking lows, the goal of 50 percent by 2030 is eminently achievable.”
