With the increased level of pollution and more consumption of energy, it is now necessary to look for renewable sources of energy. New York has more solar panels than other American cities. The government has decided to put these solar panels to good use. A new solar incentive program has been announced recently.
Community solar program
This program will allow communities including business districts, neighborhoods, etc. to join to form single purchasing groups. This will give them better buying power and will encourage solar developers to build out capacity. Hopefully, this will expand the access to renewable energy in New York City. It will establish an innovative way to empower renters and other residents to choose solar energy to power their lives. This will save a lot of energy bills and will improve New York City’s clean energy economy. It will also allow individuals to realize their social and environmental benefits from solar energy.
The effects of climate change are now evident across the country. The Hurricane Sandy, drought in d California and other disasters stress the need to move towards clean energy. It is expected that this new program will lower the emission of carbon in the New York City. It will provide a healthier living environment for the people of New York. By providing an incentive for solar energy, it is possible to move New York City towards future that is run by 100% renewable energy. So, we will have a safer environment for us and our generations to come.
