New York To Invest $1.4 Billion In Renewable Energy Projects

“This is an historic moment for New York as we make the largest purchasing commitment to renewable energy by a state in the history of our country.” Alicia Barton, president and CEO of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), comments on the recent commitment to “advance 26 large-scale renewable energy projects across New York.”

This is a big moment for the future of clean energy in New York after formally being announced by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on March 12. The projects, selected from 88 applications, are expected to range from solar construction to wind power to hydroelectric technology. With projects expected to begin in this year throughout 2022, NYSERDA calculates an additional 1,380 MW of power generated annually will provide energy to 430,000 homes and create a little over 3,000 jobs.

The Clean Energy Standard, put into effect by Governor Cuomo, is a predominant factor in the fund allocation. The initiative expects New York to run on 50 percent renewable energy by 2030. This ambitious effort is designed to motivate other states to follow in the green footsteps of The Big Apple. The initial $1.4 billion invested by the state could procure over $3 billion of direct investment over the span of the projects.
