Governor of New York, Andrew M. Cuomo has announced that the New York State Public Service Commission has set a course for the state's first procurements of offshore wind to support New York's goal of 2,400MW of new offshore wind generation by 2030.
This first phase of the state's procurements includes obtaining approximately 800 megawatts of offshore wind by 2019. To achieve the Governor's 2,400 MW goal, the New York State Energy Research & Development Authority will procure approximately 800 MW of offshore wind through a solicitation issued in the fourth quarter of 2018, in consultation and coordination with the New York Power Authority and the Long Island Power Authority. Awards are expected to be announced in the second quarter of 2019. If needed, a second solicitation will be issued in 2019.
