70 Groups Call for 100% Clean Energy in NYS

More than 70 environmental, faith and labor groups, including the Atlantic Chapter of the Sierra Club, launched a campaign on Earth Day to require New York to transition to 100% clean energy by 2030.

The groups have asked Governor Cuomo to amend the existing executive order for an 80% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 to a 100% clean energy goal by 2030. The groups plan to introduce state legislation as well.
