Massive infrastructure projects selected to deliver clean energy to New York City

September 21, 2021

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul kicked off Climate Week by announcing the selection of two massive transmission and renewable energy infrastructure projects that will deliver clean energy to New York City.

Together, the Clean Path NY and Champlain Hudson Power Express projects will add 3,400 megawatts of new solar and wind power generation and establish two new high-voltage direct current transmission lines to deliver 18 million MWh of clean solar, wind, and hydropower to New York City every year, enough to power 2.5 million homes.

Hochul said the projects, if finalized by state authorities, will allow New York City to exceed its goal of 70% renewable energy by 2030.
