“It needs to simultaneously be ambitious but also achievable to be an appropriate goal, and I think 10 gigawatts is absolutely feasible,” said Shyam Mehta, Executive Director of New York Solar Energy Industries Association.

“We shouldn’t be looking at this in terms of it being a cost, it’s an investment,” said Mehta. “We’re seeing wildfires out in the west we’re seeing hurricanes hit the east… it’s [climate change] not a problem of the future anymore, it’s here…We’re dealing with it now.”
