Hochul announces investments in renewable energy projects

Gov. Kathy Hochul announced what she called the largest state investment in renewable energy in United States history, conducting of three offshore wind projects and 22 land-based projects, her office said Tuesday.

The state will commit $300 million and attract an additional $668 million in private funding.


She said the projects would generate 6.4 gigawatts of energy, deliver approximately 12% of the state's electricity once completed and generate over 8,000 jobs when combined with other projects.


The projects are part of the state's goal for 70% of the state's electricity to come from renewable sources by 2030, which is required under the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act that the state Legislature passed in 2019.


“New York continues to set the pace for our nation’s transition to clean energy,” Hochul said in a statement. “An investment of this magnitude is about more than just fighting climate change – we’re creating good-paying union jobs, improving the reliability of our electric grid, and generating significant benefits in disadvantaged communities. Today, we are taking action to keep New York’s climate goals within reach, demonstrating to the nation how to recalibrate in the wake of global economic challenges while driving us toward a greener and more prosperous future for generations to come.”
