New York Energy Law Section 12-102 - Purpose.

12-102. Purpose. The legislature hereby finds and declares that the use of renewable energy technologies, such as solar energy, within the state should be encouraged to the maximum extent possible; that effective, well-designed, carefully manufactured and properly serviced solar thermal systems are essential for the development of a viable solar industry; that false claims, fraudulent sales practices, shoddy workmanship, equipment failures and poor servicing of products would inhibit the growth of the solar industry; that adequate warranty protections should be made available to consumers in order to prevent such deceptions; that certain warranty protections are presently made available to consumers of products normally used for personal, family or household purposes pursuant to the Federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act; and that warranty protections should be made available to purchasers of all solar energy products in this state, regardless of use.
