New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Thursday announced the completion of a solar project installation at a VA medical center in Westchester County.


Governor Cuomo says the 500 kilowatt solar installation at the Montrose VA Medical Center will save the hospital $1.9 million during the next 20 years, or some $96,000 each year. The project advances the governor’s Reforming the Energy Vision, or REV, strategy along with a Clean Energy Standard adopted this week to achieve 50 percent of the state’s electricity from renewable energy resources by 2030. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority provided $358,000 from the governor’s $1 billion NY-Sun initiative to support the installation of the solar array on the hospital's carports and buildings.
