A new program will let New York residents subscribe to local renewable energy projects and get a credit on their utility bills for their portion of the energy produced.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo approved the Shared Renewables Program last week. The non-profit group Environment New York hailed the program, saying it allows low-income families, renters, and millions of other New Yorkers to choose solar as a clean energy option.
The program is also known as community distributed generation and community net metering.
