On Tuesday, April 16th at 10:00 am, there will be a press conference kicking off Renewable Energy Week aimed at telling Gov.

It kicks off Sierra Club’s Renewable Energy Week, which includes events across the state and a robust advertising campaign in Buffalo, Rochester, Binghamton, Auburn and Albany calling on Governor Cuomo to take administrative action to create jobs and grow the economy with renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power.
