Solar Power Capacity in New York Grows by 300 percent – WNYC.

Solar power capacity in New York State tripled between 2011 and 2014, according to state figures.

More than 314 megawatts of solar energy were installed in that period. The governor’s office says the growth is due to a number of factors, including the lower cost of solar equipment and the rise of businesses marketing directly to consumers.

“It’s not really a magical formula,” Jackson Morris of the Natural Resources Defense Council said. “If you build it —it being the market and the demand and the policies you need to drive solar deployment — then developers and customers will come.”

The rate of solar growth in New York during the three year period is twice the national average.
