What’s New for Clean Energy in the Big Apple?

Dealing with the aftermath of a hurricane, tropical storm or storm surge often means coping with flooded roads, homes and communities. If your home has flooded after a storm, starting the recovery and rebuilding process can seem overwhelming.

Dealing with your insurance company, removing all the flooring, drywall and sheetrock, deciding what to repair and what to replace – the entire process can be a daunting and emotional one.

The latest news on clean energy in New York includes several developments.

Governor Kathy Hochul announced the release of final regulations to reduce methane and volatile organic compound emissions, which will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the state.[1]

New York has also become the top community solar market in the United States, with over one gigawatt of community solar installed and operational, which is enough to serve over 200,000 homes across the state.[2]

The state has also reached a record level of clean energy jobs, with over 165,000 jobs in the sector as of 2021.[3] These developments reflect New York's commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and transitioning to clean energy sources.
