M/E Engineering Responds to New Laws for Energy Production & Conservation

Aug 5, 2021

(excerpt from Buffalo Business First, July 9-15, 2021 Issue)

Climate leaders long have been developing systems that draw clean and sustainable energy from the sun, wind, and waterways.  A 2019 New York State law, intending to address climate change and reach net-zero emissions, is accelerating those efforts with rigorous targets, beginning in 2025. 

The initiatives that will emerge from the law will sweep across individuals, business, and industry as anyone who builds, rehabs, or owns a building will have to accept new practices and energy sources to turn on the lights and set the thermostat.

The region's leaders gathered to discuss the opportunities and challenges posed by New York's Climate leadership and Community Protections Act and other issues affecting their industries during a recent Panel of Experts event hosted by Business First Buffalo.
