New York State Announces 6.2 GW Renewable Energy Projects to Propel Clean Energy Growth
New York state is set to take a significant leap forward with the unveiling of a multitude of renewable energy projects totaling 6.2 gigawatts (GW).
October 27, 2023. By News Bureau
These projects encompass a trio of offshore wind initiatives and 22 onshore renewable energy endeavors, ranging from hydropower to solar energy. Collectively, they are anticipated to generate enough clean energy to power 2.6 million New York households, thereby satisfying approximately 12 percent of the state's electricity demand.
The comprehensive portfolio includes offshore wind projects, 14 novel solar facilities, six wind repowering projects, a fresh wind venture, and the revitalisation of a hydroelectric project.
The largest solar project, the 401.6 MW Mineral Basin Solar facility, located in Girard and Goshen, Penn, will feed the New York grid. Following closely is the 200 MW Hemlock Ridge Solar project, to be developed by AES in Barre and Shelby, Orleans County.
This momentous announcement further solidifies New York's commitment to achieving its goal of having 70 percent of the state's electricity derived from renewable sources by 2030, as mandated by the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act. With these projects, New York is now on track to fulfill 79 percent of its 2030 electricity needs through renewable energy sources.
The clean energy generated by these facilities is expected to annually reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 9.4 million metric tons, equivalent to removing over 2 million cars from the road each year, thereby delivering significant public health benefits.
