New York officials said the state will invest in several new renewable energy projects, both offshore and onshore, that will add 6.4 GW of clean energy generation capacity to the state’s power grid.
Gov. Kathy Hochul on Oct. 24 said the projects will deliver about 12% of New York’s electricity supply once all the installations are completed. The new projects include three offshore wind farms with about 4 GW of capacity. The portfolio includes 22 onshore projects—14 solar farms, one new wind farm, six wind repowering projects, and one hydropower facility that is being returned to service.
