ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Environmental groups along the Southern Tier and Hudson Valley say they are launching campaigns this month to help homeowners and small businesses add solar energy installations using financial incentives.

Organizers say the campaigns are supported by nonprofit Renewable-NY with funding from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.

They say group-purchase discounts, ranging from 10 to 20 percent, are available that expire this fall.

Southern Tier Solar Works is aimed at Broome, Tioga, Chenango, Delaware, Otsego and Steuben counties.

In the Hudson Valley, Solarize Goshen, Warwick, Woodstock, Beacon and Rosendale is rolling out a similar campaign.

Other regions have solar energy campaigns as well.

The state's new energy plan sets a goal of generating half of New York's power from clean, renewable sources by 2030.
