Two NY Congressmen Talk Green Jobs and EDF’s Website

EDF’s Vice President Marcia Aronoff just got back from Troy, New York, where she got to show off the latest addition to to two Congressmen, a college president, green business entrepreneurs, and the media.

Rep. Paul Tonka, EDF's Vice President Marcia Aronoff and Rep. Scott Murphy at the clean energy news conference.

Marcia was invited to speak at Rep. Scott Murphy (D-NY-20) and Rep. Paul Tonko (D-NY-21)’s news conference on clean energy. The Congressmen, both big supporters of the American Clean Energy and Security Act, were at Hudson Valley Community College to see a new solar panel installation built by students in the Green Jobs Training Program.

Marcia unveiled the brand new New York state map on New York is our 21st state to be added to the site, and it’s one of the richest for clean energy companies. The map shows 200 businesses that are working in the energy efficiency or renewable energy markets. But, as Marcia said:

Those businesses are poised to grow under a clean energy bill, but they’re just the tip of the iceberg. A clean energy bill that puts a cap on carbon pollution will put American ingenuity to work, and will help launch businesses and create jobs here in New York. We can put our renewable energy resources to work for us and revitalize our economy.
