Here's some background on this event from our friends at the Sierra Club:
On May 31st New Yorkers from across the city are going to be descending on the Clean Energy Standard hearing in lower Manhattan to help spark a renewable energy revolution in the Empire State. We need you there with us -- for our climate, our economy, and the city we love. This is the big one.
First, some background: Governor Cuomo recently established a new 'Clean Energy Standard' that aims to have 50 percent of the state's energy come from renewables by 2030. We need to make sure this new goal is enforceable--that it actually compels utilities to purchase renewables--and that it includes a specific commitment to large-scale offshore wind development. Without any real teeth, the new Standard won't live up to its promises. And without an offshore wind commitment, New York will miss out on a massive untapped renewable resource that could create thousands of new jobs.
