article New York City will finally be able to put solar panels on roofs and take advantage of the city’s new clean energy policy, Bloomberg said in a speech Monday.
Bloomberg also announced that he would take the helm of the new Clean Cities Coalition, an effort to make New York more environmentally friendly.
“New Yorkers are not living in a bubble,” Bloomberg said, adding that he will be launching a clean energy task force.
“Our city is in a state of transition, with an increasingly diverse mix of new energy sources.”
Bloomberg also pledged that his administration will invest $100 million into improving air quality in New York’s Central Park, which has become notorious for its smoggy air.
“Today we have one of the most polluted airways in the world, and we are not alone,” Bloomberg told the crowd.
“The world will never be the same.”
