Ron Kamen reveals NYSEIA'S future goals
Ron Kamen, the chief development and public policy officer of Earthkind Solar and president of the New York Solar Energy Industries Association (NYSEIA) revealed NYSEIA's goals for the new year at the Cornell School of Industrial and Labor Relations in Buffalo earlier this month.
NYSEIA plans to work with future governor Andrew Cuomo to create a program to install 5,000 MW of solar photovoltaic capacity by 2025, build support for generating 2,000 MW of solar thermal by 2020 and ensure the success of New York's solar thermal incentive program. NYSEIA is also advocating for the New York Solar Jobs Act, which has the potential of creating $20 billion in economic returns and more than 22,000 jobs over the next 15 years.
