“On behalf of New York’s solar energy industry, we applaud Governor Andrew Cuomo and state lawmakers — especially Assemblymember Steve Englebright and Senator Todd Kaminsky — for advancing this historic legislation,” said Shyam Mehta, New York Solar Energy Industries Association executive director. “We are also profoundly grateful to our partner organizations, policy makers and advocates for their tireless work that brought us to this moment. Guided by this bold vision, NYSEIA’s member companies stand ready to continue investing in New York State’s electricity infrastructure and our workforce to help reach this legislation’s full potential. New York now has a bold mandate to clean up the electric grid and improve air quality and public health for millions of New Yorkers that also rises to the challenge of the climate crisis with urgency and innovation.”
