Clean energy advocates discuss solar power credit

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - Clean energy advocates want people to know that there's a way everyone can utilize solar power, even if they can't install solar panels.

Southern Tier Solar Works held a news conference Thursday immediately prior to a SUNY BEST meeting at the Binghamton University Downtown Center in Binghamton.

Solar Works has formed a partnership with Coop Power in which residents can buy or lease a portion of a solar power project and receive credit for some of the power produced directly on their utility bill.

Betta Broad is with the new group New Yorkers for Clean Power.

"With all of us working together, one New Yorker at a time, one house at a time, one building at a time, one school at a time, and yes, one electric car at a time, we can create the kind of clean energy economy that we all want to see," said Broad.

New Yorkers for Clean Power stopped in Binghamton Thursday on its 2016 Road to Renewables Tour.
