Governor Hochul announced the release of the 10-Point Action Plan to expand and support the growing large-scale renewable energy industry in New York, reaffirming the State’s commitment to achieving the Climate Act goals. This procurement represents a significant milestone with the conditionally awarded projects including three new offshore wind projects and 22 large-scale, land-based renewable energy projects totaling 6.4 gigawatts – enough to power 2.6 million homes in New York. The three new offshore wind projects will result in 4,032 megawatts of clean energy, enough to power 2 million homes. The 10-Point Action Plan outlines a comprehensive set of actions being taken to lay the foundation for a sustainable future for all New Yorkers through the expansion of the State’s growing clean energy economy and renewable energy sector.
