At Harvest Power, we pride ourselves on contributing to New York State’s renewable energy solutions. Learn more about how solar power will help our state achieve a zero-emission electric grid.
New York State – Clean Energy Standard
New York’s Clean Energy Standard (CES) is designed to fight climate change, reduce harmful air pollution, and ensure a diverse and reliable low-carbon energy supply. Following its adoption in 2016, the CES was expanded in 2020 to meet the requirements of the Climate Act, which sets goals for achieving 70% renewably sourced electricity by 2030 and a zero-emission electric grid by 2040. By focusing on low-carbon energy sources, such as solar, wind, and hydropower, the CES will bring investment, economic development, and jobs to New York State.
Achieving New York State Renewable Energy Goals With Solar
As mentioned, New York State aims to run off 70% renewable energy by 2030. In 2022, only 29% of New York’s electricity came from renewables. At 41% of the projected renewable energy sources, solar power accounts for the most significant portion of upcoming renewable energy production.
Harvest Power is dedicated to helping New York State achieve its clean energy goals, advocating for a healthier, sustainable future.
