Sustainable Green Development of NYS Ski Resorts

I was checking the web for green ski resorts and a list of top 10 shows on the screen.The surprise was that none of them was in New York. Why?
It happens to be that New York has the best energy related incentives and now a Governor that is serious about economic development, green infrastructure, energy conservation. The Utility companies want to give grants to make energy efficiency investment on old technology at these facilities.
We are fortunate to be able to help one ski resort in finger lakes to get 70% of their cost to install energy efficient snow guns offered as grant from the power company. Other greem measure are planned to save water, recycle waste and make the facility Energy Independent over the 5-10 years.
Leaders supporting such Sustainable green measures are expected to help them achieve these goals.
