NYSEIA Expands Clean Energy Goals, Calls for 20 GW of Distributed Solar by 2035

The New York Solar Energy Industries Association (NYSEIA) has released 20 Gigawatts by 2035: Raising New York’s Distributed Solar Goal (“The Roadmap”), a detailed policy report that calls on state lawmakers to increase New York’s distributed solar goal to 20 GW by 2035. 

The state’s current climate and energy transition plan calls for 10 GW by 2030. 

The Roadmap details a plan that envisions The Empire State doubling down on distributed solar generation, which has already outpaced utility-scale renewables, becoming one of the most reliable ways to deliver progress on the state’s clean energy commitments. It currently represents more than 90% of New York’s solar capacity. 

There has been more than 800 MW added in the past year and the state is on track to surpass 6 GW by the end of 2024, meeting its goal one year ahead of schedule. 

The report highlights plans to install rooftop solar on homes and businesses, as well as small-scale ground-mounted solar arrays. 

“As New York struggles to meet its ambitious renewable energy mandates, legislative leaders and regulators must take decisive action,” said Noah Ginsburg, Executive Director of NYSEIA, in a statement. “Scaling up distributed solar deployment will deliver cost-effective progress toward New York’s overall climate goals while delivering immense benefits to New York’s environment, economy, and working families.”
