Governor Hochul announced the release of a 10-Point Action Plan to keep growing the large-scale renewable energy industry in New York, reaffirming the State’s commitment to achieving the goals of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (Climate Act). The Governor’s plan outlines the State’s actions toward laying the foundation for a clean and renewable energy sector and a sustainable New York.
“Strong, continued support for expanding the renewable energy sector is critical to realizing the full potential of our green economy and protecting New Yorkers from the climate crisis,” Governor Hochul said. “This 10-point action plan underscores our commitment to addressing challenges that this sector is experiencing all across the country and hardens our resolve to ramp up our efforts in providing affordable and clean energy to all New Yorkers.”
The 10-point Action Plan details a series of benchmarks and projects over the next several months, as well as how the Governor’s Administration plans to overcome recent macroeconomic and inflationary challenges that have slowed down the implementation and expansion of renewable energy.
