By the year 2030 the New York ski resorts will be able to run completely off renewable energy. The Belleayre, Gore, and Whiteface ski areas have all committed to the cause.
The campaign is called the “I Am Pro Snow” campaign, and it is being run by the Climate Reality Project as well as Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Clean Energy Standard effort. Andrew made a statement about the decision.
“With this commitment, (the ski resorts) are joining New York’s nation-leading efforts to fight climate change, reduce our carbon footprint and foster the development of renewable resources,” Cuomo said in a press release earlier this month. This commitment to New York’s future, along with landmark new state investments in these facilities, will help ensure these resorts’ continued vitality for generations to come.”
