Repowering New York with clean renewable energy is critical to combating climate change and reducing the frequency of severe storms like Superstorm Sandy.
The NY-Sun Initiative is repowering the state, by funding solar research and ensuring solar power is affordable for everyone. In 2012, the NY-Sun Initiative doubled the number of solar panels installed on people's roofs in New York State. And in 2013, the Initiative will double that number again - quadrupling the number of solar panels installed since 2011.
But the NY-Sun Initiative is due to end in two years. We must not stop now - this is a critical time to spark solar development and the green economy in New York. Governor Cuomo's proposed 10-year extension to the initiative is key to propelling New York State to a sustainable future.
Sign our petition, and thank Governor Cuomo for taking leadership in renewable energy and encourage him to extend the NY-Sun Initiative until 2023.
