Greentech Media Highlights Major NY Solar Bill

Momentum is high for major solar legislation in New York State, but it’s a race to the finish to get it passed before lawmakers go home for the year.

The New York Solar Bill, which would enact a ten-year extension of Governor Cuomo’s successful NY-Sun Initiative, was reported out of the Assembly Ways and Means Committee yesterday and is headed to the Assembly floor for a vote. The Assembly is expected to bring the bill up for a vote in the next few days. A version of the bill already unanimously passed the Senate on Earth Day.
