Typically, as California goes, so goes the nation. But the same often holds true with New York. Here is one news item rapidly making the rounds on the clean tech sites that I hope will demonstrate New York’s influence.


On Tuesday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced at a clean energy summit in Las Vegas that he wants New York to make a major shift into renewable energy, and urged businesses to submit proposals by September 19th. No holds barred on the sources of energy – he wants to float everything from urban turbines, skyscraper solar panels, tidal energy, geothermal energy and….ahem, nuclear. I wish we could pretend he didn’t say that last one, but yes, he wants “clean nuclear” power.

Very cool.  That follows up well on NYC's efforts to make their taxi fleet hybrids.  Go New York!

Its about time! I can't wait to see the domino effect as more states embrace renewable energy. Now they just have to create rebates and incentvies for home and business owners to go solar and wind or possibly if we had a supportive fed. govt. we could have a national standard similar to Germany
