The state expects to invest up to $1.5 billion in new clean energy projects through the two RFPs, administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and the New York Power Authority.

The investments will advance the Governor's ambitious goal to get 50 percent of New York's electricity from renewable energy sources by 2030.

Both solicitations yielded creative proposals to use large-scale solar, wind, hydroelectric or biomass renewable energy generation technologies to support the Governor's Clean Energy Standard.

NYSERDA received 88 proposals from 30 clean energy developers and NYPA received more than 130 proposals from 51 clean energy developers in response to the requests for proposals.

A number of development companies submitted proposals for both RFPs.
