Push Is On for Solar Power Bill to be Voted Upon in Albany This Session | WAER

Solar Power Bill in Albany could create jobs and limit power outages during storms like Sandy, advocates say.
This solar bill would establish Governor Cuomo’s Sun Initiative, which offers tax incentives to solar production companies to encourage them to come to New York.  Solar Energy Industries Association Senior Vice President Carrie Cullen Hitt says this bill would allow New York State to strengthen its list of energy options.
“Every market including New York needs a portfolio of resources.  You are always going to have other fuels in the mix and other generation resources.  Hopefully they are going to be cleaner and more efficient plants.  You are going to need those in perpetuity.  Our goal is to look at solar and say increasingly so how can we rely on this resource.”
