WASHINGTON, D.C. - Following is a statement from Rick Umoff, Director of State Affairs for the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), in response to today's remarks by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in his 2016 State of the State:

"Once again, Governor Cuomo is leading by example, and we applaud both his efforts and his long-term vision for New York.

"Under Gov. Cuomo's leadership, solar capacity in New York has grown by over 200 percent and the state has launched key policies - such as the 50 percent renewable energy mandate - that attract investment, while improving the state's environment at the same time.

"Today's pledge to expand the state's solar training program and convert 150,000 homes and businesses to solar by 2020 will bring needed jobs and clean, affordable energy to even more Americans - further cementing the Empire State as a true American example of clean energy success."
