Over 20 Large-Scale Renewable Energy Projects planned for New York

The governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo announced on Earth Day 2021, the state of New York has over 20 Large-Scale Renewable Energy Infrastructure Projects under construction or planned for construction to begin this year.

The projects are part of New York State’s first phase of nearly 11,000 MW of clean energy contracted to power the state, enough to power 5 million houses. Among the projects is the first utility-scale solar project in Upstate New York to enter the final phase of construction. These projects will create more than 2,000 jobs and spur nearly US$1.5 billion in private investment to help stimulate the state’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Governor also announced that New York State has launched its fifth annual solicitation, the State’s largest land-based procurement to date, for large-scale renewable projects to accelerate the rapid pace of clean energy development and combat climate change. This announcement advances progress toward New York’s goal that 70 percent of the state’s electricity comes from renewable sources like wind and solar by 2030 as outlined in the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act.

“New York State’s economy faces huge challenges from both the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing climate crisis, and renewable energy has a vital role to play in our state’s ongoing convalescence and our economic recovery,” Governor Cuomo said. These large-scale renewable projects will foster much-needed investment and thousands of good-paying jobs across New York as we continue to rebuild the state’s economy with green energy.”
