The Public Service Commission approved NYSERDA’s Clean Energy Fund (CEF), a 10-year, $5 billion commitment to work in coordination with other New York State policies.

Cuomo’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV), a strategy to build a clean, resilient, and affordable energy system for all New Yorkers.
