Governor Cuomo's 6 GW goal would more than double our state's solar jobs count and bring substantial economic benefits to New York in terms of employee, corporate and state tax revenues. "Codifying the 6 gigawatt goal in the legislature would provide the necessary visibility and security that businesses need in order to continue investing in New York and place New York as a national leader in addressing climate change," said Shyam Mehta, Executive Director of New York Solar Energy Industries Association (NYSEIA).
