Build-Ready Program


The “Build-Ready” Program advances large-scale renewable energy projects by identifying sites that are consistent with the State’s standards and are made build-ready for private renewable energy developers.

Through this program, NYSERDA works with its State partners and local communities to rapidly advance new “Build-Ready” projects, prioritizing the development of existing or abandoned commercial sites, brownfields, landfills, former industrial sites, and other abandoned or underutilized sites. NYSERDA will pursue site control and pre-construction development activities prior to competitively auctioning the developed sites, bundled with contracts for renewable energy payments, to provide a de-risked package for private developers to construct and operate projects at these sites.
