Solar projects across the state from New York City, Long Island, Hudson Valley, Capital Region and Western New York – at locations ranging from city housing and government buildings to a winery and landfill – were recognized by the New York Solar Energy Industries Association (NYSEIA) with 6KC awards.
“These projects recognize the best and brightest solar projects and individuals in the Empire State,” said NYSEIA Executive Director Gail Markets.

Kamen, also chairman at EarthKind Energy in Kingston, has served as president of the membership association since 2009 and has more than 20 years of experience in the energy industry. Kamen and the association have been strong supporters of the Solar Jobs Bill, among other statewide policies and initiatives.
