Geothermal Tax Credit Bill Vetoed
We are disappointed to announce that Governor Andrew Cuomo has decided to veto bill A9925 which would have given much needed financial support to the geothermal industry and renewable energy consumers in New York. We will not adequately address climate change and reduce our greenhouse gases without renewable heating and cooling solutions like geothermal.
The good news is we are growing a grassroots movement across the state for renewable energy and due to our phone calls, petitions, tweets, e-mails and actions across the state, there is more likely to be more support for geothermal and other renewable energy technologies in the near future.
Thank you all for taking action! Together, we'll keep the pressure up to make sure a geothermal tax credit is included in the 2017-18 budget.
