A new law in New York will require the state to procure 6 GW of distributed solar by 2025, as well as require utilities to get 70% of their electricity from renewable energy by 2030.

On Thursday, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, alongside former Vice President Al Gore, signed into law the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA), what he calls the most ambitious and comprehensive climate and clean energy legislation in the country.
