Governor Kathy Hochul has announced the release of New York's sixth competitive solicitation calling for 2,000 megawatts or more of new large-scale renewable energy projects.
The projects selected through this solicitation are expected to generate approximately 4.5 million megawatt hours of renewable electricity per year. NYSERDA expects to notify the awarded developers in the spring of 2023. Payments under these awards will not commence until projects have obtained all required permits and approvals and become operational to power New York. Eligible projects include any large-scale renewable project that can be certified as a Tier 1 renewable technology and entered operation after January 1, 2015. Participating projects not yet in operation must show evidence that they are capable of reaching commercial operation May 2025, with the option to extend to May 2028.
