Governor Cuomo's Clean Energy Plan Approved: Huge Boost for Solar, Wind, and Nuclear in New York

The New York State Public Service Commission recently approved Governor Andrew Cuomo's clean energy plan, which calls for a rapid expansion of wind and solar power, with a goal of making 50 percent of the state's energy renewable by 2030.

The plan calls for a rapid expansion of wind and solar power, with a goal of making 50 percent of the state’s energy renewable by 2030. The commissioners acknowledged the thousands of comments they had received and the opinions voiced at hearings throughout the public discussion phase.

One of the concerns many have voiced is that the plan relies heavily on nuclear power. Cuomo has said that the state’s nuclear plants are necessary to provide zero-carbon energy, for now at least.
