Solar Power in New York Increased nearly 800% since 2011

Not surprising NY's acclaimed leadership on renewables, smart grids, innovation around energy.  Their economic gains around these investments are equally impressive:

 
In February, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced state-supported solar power in New York increased nearly 800 percent from December 2011 to December 2016, leveraging nearly $1.5 billion in private investment. Solar growth is critical to the Governor’s Clean Energy Standard that 50 percent of New York’s electricity come from renewable sources by 2030.

“New York is a national leader in clean energy, and the tremendous growth of the solar industry across this state demonstrates this renewable technology’s increased accessibility and affordability for residents and businesses," Governor Cuomo said. "Our investments in this clean energy resource create jobs, reduce carbon emissions, support economic growth, and help build a cleaner, greener New York for all."

The 795 percent solar growth in the State over the last five years was supported by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, the New York Power Authority, the Long Island Power Authority and other private and public sector actors. 64,926 projects were installed through the end of 2016, compared with 9,079 through the end of 2011. These state-supported projects total nearly 744 megawatts of solar power installed. That amount of electricity would be sufficient to meet the needs of more than 121,000 average homes.   

The significant growth of solar power is attributed to a combination of factors, including the NY-Sun Megawatt Block Incentive program, a decline in solar equipment prices, and growth in the number of installer businesses marketing solar directly to consumers.

  1. Hi Peter, great news about the growth of solar! I'm a huge fan of the meteoric rise.

    I'm so interested in seeing solar grow that I formed a consulting agency specifically to help solar installation companies that want to grow faster.

    Climate change isn't slowing down so solar can't either!

    Oh, and just to help out here, I found a couple little problems on this blog site.
    1: Your renewablenow.biz link is 404
    2: You have a typo "Ecomnomic" should be "Economic"
