Join NYLCV For Solar Jobs Days!

Summer is nearly here, and we're urging Albany to put more of that New York sunshine to work already! It's time to show lawmakers that solar power is a priority for New Yorkers.
We're teaming up with an incredible group of organizations to do just that at free community events up and down the state. These New York Solar Jobs Days will feature fun solar demos, training from solar job experts, opportunities to talk with local solar companies, and plenty of ways to show your elected official that you care.
Get some sun at the New York Solar Jobs Day nearest you:
Without strong state policy providing a clear roadmap for growth, solar currently accounts for far less than 1% of New York's electricity. Even so, it's provided many New Yorkers with clean energy, bill savings, and a rare bright spot of economic opportunity through the recession economy.
Just imagine what could be accomplished with real leadership from Albany. The New York Solar Jobs Act proposal, for instance, would make the Empire State a clear solar leader with a goal of deploying 3,000 MW by 2021.
Join us in calling on our lawmakers for solar action. In this fight, there's nothing as powerful as the voices of real New Yorkers.
