NYSERDA and NYPA Issue RFP for Renewable Energy Development in State
As part of NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Climate Jobs initiative, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and the New York Power Authority (NYPA), both Consortium members, issued requests for proposals (RFPs) to renewable energy developers as the Authorities seek to develop as much as 2.5 million megawatt hours (MWh) of large scale renewable energy for the state. Proposals are due September 1, 2017. The increased generation of renewable energy supports the Governor’s Clean Energy Standard goal of having 50 percent of electricity in the state sourced from renewables by 2030. John B. Rhodes, NYSERDA president and CEO, noted that “the state is taking another milestone step to ensure a cleaner environment for all through the issuance of these RFPs. . .” Gil C. Quiniones, NYPA president and CEO, said, “Through this largest-ever call for large-scale renewable projects, we are ensuring that New York’s energy mix is viable and affordable now and into the future.” Click here for the press release.
