To achieve New York’s full solar potential: New York’s state government should commit to obtain at least 20 percent of its electricity from solar power by and adopt policies to achieve that goal. State leaders should expand the renewable energy standard and continue the state’s successful NY Sun Program. In January Cuomo unveiled a series of clean energy proposals, including a pledge to deploy 1, megawatts of energy storage by as the state works toward 50 percent renewable energy by   Buildings account for 39% of primary energy consumption and 72% of all electricity consumed in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Energy’s buildings energy data book. Buildings account for more energy use than the entire U.S. transportation sector and they produce more greenhouse gas than any other country in the world. Los Angeles took the top honors in the EPA’s 10th annual Top Cities rankings, which honors the metropolitan areas and sustainable communities with the most buildings earning ENERGY STAR certification each year..

New York State’s Solar Equipment Tax Credit – New York also offers a Solar Energy System Equipment Credit that lowers the cost of solar panels in New York. The credit is equal to the lesser of 25% or your system cost or $5, and can be claimed if you do a lease/PPA or purchase your system. If you are interested in becoming a partner organization for future Solar Power Events, please complete the Industry Partner Form. For more information about the program, please contact Lesley Fondren. Thank you to our Industry Partners ACE NY’s mission is to promote the use of clean, renewable electricity technologies and energy efficiency in New Continue reading .   Thermal energy. Among the most common devices used to capture solar energy and convert it to thermal energy are flat-plate collectors, which are used for solar heating applications. Because the intensity of solar radiation at Earth’s surface is so low, these collectors must be large in area. Even in sunny parts of the world’s temperate regions, for instance, a .   The New York mayor's proposed gas phase-out is also meant to work in tandem with a energy efficiency retrofit law championed by City Councilman Costa Constantinides and Speaker Corey Johnson. The law requires large buildings to meet new greenhouse gas emissions standards, but gives owners flexibility to reduce their emissions.
