Join the fight for a 100% renewable New York
We've seen the devastation that worsening superstorms have brought to New York, Houston, Florida, and Puerto Rico, and we cannot wait any longer to act. Our health, our economy, and our communities are at risk. Since the federal government won’t do its job, New York can—and must—lead.
In 2019, NY Renews played an instrumental role in developing and campaigning to pass the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, the nation's most ambitious state climate law.
The Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CCPA) gives the nation a model for an equitable transition to 100% renewable energy. It will:
- Power New York with 100% renewable energy by 2050
- Significantly scale up investment in wind, solar, and other renewable energy resources (which do not include nuclear or natural gas)
- Make sure that green jobs are good jobs with fair wages and high labor standards
- Target investment in communities hit first and worst by climate change, including communities of color and low-income communities
Now, the fight is on the make sure our landmark Climate Act is fully funded. Without funding, the law's benefits and protections won't be implemented or benefit everyday New Yorkers.
