Due to some changes in NY state law Oil-free Renewable power is available to all... Check out  http://www.epa.gov/greenpower/locator/ny.htm to buy Solar, Hydro, Wind or Landfill Gas power through your local energy company for an extra penny or so per kilowatt Hour.

I just signed up for a mix of 25% wind 75% small hydro through ConEd and it'll only cost about $2 more per month than oil powered generators.

it sucks that it extra for what is a more sustainable and overall inexpensive source of power, but the electric monopolies own the power grid and therefore smaller renewable companies have to pay a premium to deliver over the existing infrastructure.
