NYLCV Statement on Renewable Energy in post-COVID Recovery

The New York League of Conservation Voters released the following statement regarding Governor Cuomo including renewable energy in New York’s economic recovery:

Julie Tighe, President of the New York League of Conservation Voters, said, “We applaud Governor Cuomo for championing renewable energy projects as part of New York’s post-COVID economic recovery. We must invest in our clean energy infrastructure including support for wind and solar upstate, continuing to develop our offshore wind resources, and bringing existing renewable hydropower sources to New York, as proposed by the Champlain Hudson Power Express. We need an all-of-the-above strategy to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels to achieve the State’s goal of 100% clean energy by 2040, while also creating green jobs.”
