Utility Dive reports on the New York Public Service Commission's (PSC) order to offer additional financial options to build renewable energy projects, quoting AEE's Ryan Katofsky. Read excerpts below and the entire UD piece here.
The PSC sees its order to the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) as a means "to decrease capital costs and further spur the development of ... clean energy resources." The move builds on Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Jan. 8 announcement, in his 2020 State of the State address, that NYSERDA would make competitive awards to 21 large-scale wind, solar and storage projects in upstate New York, totaling more than 1 GW of capacity, the PSC noted.
