New York and California Lead in Clean Energy
“For a glimpse of what New York’s just-announced clean energy standard could mean to the state’s economy, look West.
New York’s plan to get 50 percent of its energy from renewables by 2030, announced Monday by Gov. Cuomo, matches the renewable standard set by California in 2015. It will make New York a major leader for clean energy (only tiny Vermont and Hawaii have higher standards than New York and California), setting an example for other states.
Look to the other side of the continent at California, and the positive impacts of a 50 percent renewable standard are undeniable.”
