New York announces $1.4B renewables funding as largest single state commitment
The money will go to 22 utility-scale solar farms, three wind farms and a hydroelectric facility, which will add almost 1,400 MW in renewable capacity to the state. Projects receiving support are spread across the state, and include a range of resource sizes. In a first for New York, one of the wind farms will include energy storage. Several projects will break ground next month, and all are expected to be online by 2022 adding more than 1,380 MW of capacity and generating more than 3,200,000 MWh annually.
