New York Power Authority Issues RFI on RE Opportunities

The New York Power Authority (NYPA) issued a Request for Information (RFI) to understand potential interest and opportunities for NYPA to collaborate with renewable developers, contractors, and companies to develop, own, and operate renewable energy generating projects and storage systems, including solar photovoltaic energy, wind energy and battery energy storage. 

The RFI seeks to advance concepts that were mentioned in the Power Authority’s recently published Conferral Report, which includes input on renewable energy deployment gathered from formal conversations between NYPA and stakeholders as called for in legislation included in the 2023-24 Enacted State Budget.

“The Power Authority is building on momentum from the completed renewable energy conferral process to now engage with renewable developers directly to identify opportunities in the energy marketplace,” said NYPA President and CEO Justin E. Driscoll, in a statement. "NYPA’s unique position as an innovative public utility allows us to bring our resources and experience to bear to build projects in timely, economical ways. The results of this RFI will inform the Power Authority’s next steps, advancing a cohesive and efficient transition to a clean energy economy for New York State that will benefit all New Yorkers.”

The RFI seeks information related to joint development opportunities in support of New York State’s aggressive energy goals. Responses should be sent to [email protected] by February 7.

In May 2023, the 2023-24 Enacted State Budget provided NYPA with more authority to develop, own, and operate renewable energy generating projects—either alone or in collaboration with other entities.

These projects are intended to help support the state's renewable energy goals in the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, maintain an adequate and reliable supply of electric power and energy in the state, and support the new REACH program, which will enable low-income and moderate-income electricity customers to receive bill credits through the production of renewable energy by NYPA.
