New York’s renewable energy revolution is ramping up to become a bigger part of the energy equation, bringing stability, security and strength through diversity and local supply, and a significant number of good paying energy jobs to the Empire State.
THE AGE OF SOLAR
FULFILLING THE VISION
Over a century ago, visionaries built the infrastructure that helped realize Thomas Edison’s innovations and Americans became accustomed to accessing electric power at the flick of a switch. However, after decades of crippling storms, fossil fuel instabilities, grid vulnerabilities and political and economic turmoil around the globe, our populace agrees that a 21st Century infrastructure must include renewable energy. The bulk of today's’ energy buyers have experienced multiple outages and are aware of the many economic, environmental and political costs of their power sources. Moreover, the generations that are now the decision makers have grown up with the premise of solar and have noticed, like other technologies, it’s evolution. Mainstream is ready for Solar.
