"NYSERDA recognizes the critical competitive principles articulated in today’s New York State Public Service Commission order. Based on this order and Governor Hochul’s direction, NYSERDA, as the administrator of the Clean Energy Standard, will act swiftly to continue advancement of large-scale renewable energy projects toward meeting New York’s Climate Act goals.

NYSERDA remains steadfast in our commitment to a cost-effective and timely procurement, and development of renewable energy projects on behalf of New Yorkers. As such, NYSERDA will assess impacts on the contracted portfolio, and with input from the Department of Public Service and the renewable energy industry, proceed swiftly with an accelerated procurement process that prioritizes competition, simplifies bid requirements, incorporates inflation indexing, all while coordinating with transmission planning initiatives. In parallel, NYSERDA, having concluded its current offshore wind and land-based renewables procurements, will make award announcements in the near future."
