Largest-ever offshore wind solicitation announced by Governor Cuomo for up to 2,500 megawatts of renewable energy

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced New York’s second offshore wind solicitation seeking up to 2,500 megawatts of projects. This is the largest in the nation’s history in addition to last year’s solicitation which resulted in nearly 1,700 megawatts awarded. This solicitation is coupled with a complementary multi-port infrastructure investment, which totals more than $400 million dollars of both public and private dollars for port infrastructure in New York since last year. The second solicitation continues to include both Environmental and Fisheries Mitigation Plans. For Governor Cuomo’s statement and more information on the solicitation, see here
