[Forbes] New York would rely more on wind, solar and other renewable energy sources while adopting new conservation measures, under a proposal released Monday. The recommendations to Lt. Gov. David Paterson came as a deal to build a solar energy manufacturing plant in the Hudson Valley was announced. Prism Solar Technologies Inc. will use almost $1.5 million in public money to build a research and development plant in Ulster County. The company estimates that it will create more than 140 jobs within three years and more than 400 jobs in five years.
