ELIZABETHTOWN — New York has made an aggressive effort to position itself
as a national leader in renewable energy.

The state’s Clean Energy Standard has mandated 50 percent of the state’s
electricity must be generated by renewable sources by 2030.

Chief in meeting the mission is solar. To facilitate their goals, the state
has rolled out solarize campaigns, or locally organized community outreach
efforts designed to sign up groups of homes and businesses in a single area.
