The New York Green Energy plan is currently the focus of a number of scientists and universities for study and potential implementation throughout the country. The plan will include new on and offshore facilities for rooftop, wind turbines and stand alone solar arrays as well as ocean wave power devices, geothermal power plans, hydroelectric plants and tidal turbines. Even though there is an incredible combination of renewable and sustainable energy sources, a majority of the energy will actually be coming from local solar power (38%) and wind power (40%).
An incredible result of the plan and the study is that there will be a direct effect on healthcare costs. Not something that was previously factored in, however, the reduction of pollution and the negative effects on health has been calculated to actually pay for health costs within only a seventeen year period.
