Last month, I attended NAHB’s midyear meeting in Miami and had the pleasure of sitting in on a presentation by Daniel Swift, president and CEO of Des Moines-based architecture group BSB Design.
Incentives, leasing policies driving PV installations in New York
State went from seventh to fifth overall in number of solar jobs in 2013
The NY-Sun Initiative that provides $800 million in incentives, as well as policies that encourage people to lease solar energy systems from third parties, are driving growth of solar energy in New York. The number of solar-power installations on residential and commercial facilities grew nationwide in 2013 and soared at a faster-than-average rate in New York. The state jumped from seventh to fifth overall in the number of solar jobs, with about 5,000 workers.
