ALBANY, N.Y. – Gov. Andrew Cuomo is calling for a massive expansion of clean energy in New York.
In his State of the State and Budget address on Tuesday, the governor called for a commitment to move New York State to 70 percent carbon free electricity by 2030 and 100 percent by 2040, the most aggressive clean energy goal in the country.
Cuomo’s 2019 agenda calls for doubling distributed solar by 2025 and nearly quadrupling offshore wind by 2035—on the path to 100 percent carbon-free electricity by 2040.
Governor Cuomo Announces Plan Directing the Procurement of Approximately 800 Megawatts of Offshore Wind to Jumpstart Industry
First Phase of Offshore Wind Procurement Will Support State's Overall Goal of 2,400 Megawatts of Offshore Wind by 2030
Will Support 5,000 New Manufacturing, Installation and Operation Jobs in Burgeoning Industry
Supports State's Nation-Leading Clean Energy Standard for 50% of Electricity to Come from Renewable Energy Sources by 2030 to Combat Climate Change
Developers are watching closely as regulators prepare to make a critical decision on how the Empire State will buy its first 800MW of offshore wind.

The Million Solar Strong coalition, a movement of leading industry, environmental, clean energy and community organizations, has launched a grassroots campaign to urge Governor Cuomo to stand up to the Trump Administration by setting a bold new goal of powering one million New York households with solar.
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority was awarded a $18.5 million U.S. Department of Energy grant to lead a nationwide research and development consortium for the offshore wind industry.
Mark Twichell’s June 7 commentary (“Wind turbines threaten property values in Chautauqua”) fails to mention the overwhelmingly positive benefits wind power brings to rural communities.
ALBANY, N.Y. – A "low-cost" option for development of New York state's offshore wind initiative would reap the most benefits - that's the message being sent to the Public Service Commission. A coalition of environmental, business and labor groups has submitted comments to the PSC on the development of the first 800 megawatts of wind power off New York's Atlantic coast.
