NORWICH – With new alternative energy initiatives outlined in the Governor Andrew Cuomo’s recent State of the State address, Chenango Community Action for Renewable Energy is looking toward the future and the viable options Chenango has when it comes to alternative energy.
“Right now, we are cautiously optimistic,” explained C-CARE Chairman Ken Fogarty. “The governor’s State of State Address was missing a lot of details of how some of his proposals would work. Without the details, it’s hard to say.”
Among the governor’s proposals was the New York Greenbank – a $1 billion bank to leverage public dollars with private sector matched money to stimulate growth in clean technology and clean energy jobs. To coordinate the state’s clean technology agenda and oversee clean energy incentives, the governor appointed a state cabinet position of “energy czar” earlier this year.
