NY’s Reforming the Energy Vision Lacks Good Jobs Vision

 This letter to the editor was written by

 Ted Skerpon Chair of the 15,000 member NYS Utility Labor Council and a board member of the 60,000 member NYS Electrical Workers Association.
 
Politicians are led by polls and this is the case with Energy Reform in New York State.
In a poll conducted by Clarity Campaign Labs, 77% of New York voters think the government should do more to support renewable energy and 10% of are already using renewable energy in their private lives with 60% wanting to in the future.
Basically, 2 out of 3 of us believe that being 100% reliant on renewable energy is possible. This is going to sound crazy, but 2 out of 3 of us have no idea what we are talking about.
Our desire to do is good is great, but our knowledge on how energy is created, stored and delivered lacks basic understanding.
