Governor Cuomo discussed the problem of climate change and how the state has already been working on it. He also discussed the business opportunities of renewable energy and how New York needs to be at the forefront.
"Now, New York State has a business and an environmental opportunity. Let’s become the international capital for clean and green energy products," said Cuomo. "I believe this is the economy of tomorrow and while we’re developing the business plan, we can also employ it in the state of New York. I propose installing solar in over 150,000 homes and businesses and converting SUNY facilities to renewable energy by the year 2020. We can do it and we should.
My friends, this is the path for the future to ensure that the planet has a future – let New York lead the way once again on this important topic."
Let's Do the Right Thing.
In last night's State of the Union Address, President Obama spent a portion of his speech talking about global climate change, and the importance of developing and embracing clean energy sources in addressing the problem.
Verbatim, the President said, "On rooftops from Arizona to New York, solar is saving Americans tens of millions of dollars a year on their energy bills and employs more Americans than coal." He went on the say,"Now we've got to accelerate the transition away from old, dirtier energy sources. Rather than subsidize the past, we should invest in the future..."
Solar will save you money, and is the energy source of the future.
By Going Solar, you are helping the planet and making it a better place for future generations.
Let's do the right thing, and take that step forward.
