NYSERDA 2020 Offshore Wind Solicitation

Coming Soon

Under the 2020 Offshore Wind solicitation (ORECRFP20-1) NYSERDA will procure at least 1,000 megawatts of offshore wind in accordance with the Public Service Commission Order Authorizing Offshore Wind Solicitation in 2020Link opens in new window - close new window to return to this page. [PDF] issued and effective April 23, 2020.

On April 2, 2020, NYSERDA hosted an informational webinar to update the industry and seek input regarding impacts being experienced as a result of COVID-19.

While NYSERDA fully supports and is poised to execute on this authorization, given the current circumstances, we feel issuing a near term solicitation would not be responsible nor advisable.

NYSERDA is considering options to issue the State’s second offshore wind solicitation in coordination with a $200 million solicitation to upgrade New York’s ports, at a date that is sensitive to the significant and difficult challenges currently facing private industries and New Yorkers. Given the dynamic nature of the situation, NYSERDA is closely monitoring the crisis and stands ready to launch its solicitations when the associated activities can responsibly begin.
