Renewable Energy New York

According to NYSERDA and the federal Department of Energy, New York’s renewable resources of wind, hyrdopower, solar, geothermal and biomass provide about 11% of the energy that New Yorkers use. Renewable resources power the state’s transportation, space heating, industrial processes and electricity power. Most importantly, renewable energy has the potential to meet as much as 40% of New York energy needs by 2030. Since almost 100% of the renewable energy used in New York is generated in-state (while most fossil fuel energy is imported), local economies are able to keep and further invest more of the monies spent for renewable energy. Stable, well-paid jobs in grid-scale renewable energy industries help sustain local New York economies. The continuously growing markets for renewable technologies enhance New York’s technical, commercial and financial and industrial potential.
