De Blasio should rethink Canada hydropower plan

Four years ago, Mayor de Blasio pledged that 100% of the electricity needed to power City operations would become clean and renewable. Meeting a bold goal can take time. But the next we heard, the Mayor announced, for Earth Day, that it would take another five years and that the City would obtain all of its electricity from Canadian hydropower.  Unfortunately, this approach is at odds with State policy and is not the best option for taxpayers, workers, or the environment.
