New York Solar Energy Industries Association Executive Director Zack Dufresne said, "Today's news is evidence that New York's bold investments in solar energy are rapidly paying dividends. New York's achievement of 4 GW of installed distributed solar demonstrates the success of the nation-leading NY-Sun program and the impact that market certainty can have on the achievement of our clean energy goals. NYSEIA and its member companies are grateful for the unwavering support of Governor Hochul, NYSERDA, the Public Service Commission, and the State Legislature in our efforts to meet and exceed our 10 GW solar deployment and CLCPA equity goals. By directly serving disadvantaged communities, creating jobs, and providing grid benefits and avoided transmission costs, the distributed solar industry looks forward to continuing to play a key role in effectively implementing New York's clean energy transition."
