Energize Your Career At NYSERDA/NY GREEN BANK & Others Will Be Green With Envy
New York is leading the nation in the fight on global climate change and the transition to a clean energy-powered economy. In 2019, Governor Cuomo signed the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA), the most ambitious climate and clean energy legislation in the country.
The CLCPA requires the State to achieve a zero-emission electricity system by 2040 and reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 and 85 percent by 2050, setting a new standard for states and the nation.
The CLCPA drives investment in clean energy solutions such as wind, solar, energy efficiency and energy storage and ensures that at least 35 percent of the benefits with a goal of 40 percent from clean energy investments are realized by disadvantaged and low-to-moderate income communities. The CLCPA calls for an equitable and just transition to clean energy that creates jobs and continues fostering a green economy as New York State recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Enshrined into law through the CLCPA, New York is on a path to reach its goals of economy wide carbon neutrality and achieving a zero-emissions electricity sector by 2040, faster than any other state. It builds on New York’s unprecedented ramp-up of clean energy including:
· 70 percent of the state’s electricity from renewables by 2030, with 100 percent clean electricity sector by 2040
· 9,000 megawatts of offshore wind by 2035
· 6,000 megawatts of distributed solar by 2025
· 3,000 megawatts of energy storage by 2030 – one of the largest in the nation
· 185 TBtu end-use savings in buildings and industrial facilities below the 2025 energy-use
