A state task force is recommending New York increase its use of wind, solar and other renewable energy sources and take greater conservation measures.
Lt. Gov. David Paterson today released the recommendations made by the Renewable Energy Task Force, which aims to create an integrated, long-term renewable energy plan for the state.
The plan includes changes in law that would provide hundreds of millions of dollars a year for incentives to businesses to develop and build renewable energy facilities. Workers would also be trained in the growing field.
State government would also take a lead role by encouraging car pooling and reducing the amount of miles traveled by state vehicles.
