Press Release: Advocates Applaud NY PSC Progress on Community Shared Solar | Vote Solar
Albany, NY – Dec 12, 2014 – Organizations representing community, social justice, business, and environmental interests today joined together to applaud progress toward expanding clean energy access to more New Yorkers. At its regularly scheduled meeting yesterday, the New York Public Service Commission announced plans to advance Community Shared Renewables, an innovative concept that could enable renters and millions of other New York energy consumers to go solar for the first time.
The Commission will engage in a consultative process to assess New York's Shared Renewables potential and program design. Solar advocates are celebrating the Commission's interest in Shared Renewables and are urging the Commission and other policymakers to act quickly to unleash the many economic, environmental and public health benefits of expanded solar access.
