ACE NY and NYOWA Applaud the Release of the Expedited Tier 1 and Offshore Wind RFPs


In response to NYSERDA and Governor Hochul’s release of the expedited
Requests for Proposals for both Tier 1 (land-based) and offshore wind, ACE NY and NYOWA
offer these comments:
“The renewable energy industry is encouraged by New York’s speedy issuance of solicitations
for renewable energy projects, both offshore wind power and land-based wind and solar
power, knowing that companies are looking forward to competing for these contracts,” said
Anne Reynolds, executive director of the Alliance for Clean Energy New York. “Moving ahead
with projects will bring construction jobs, local tax revenue, and clean electricity. I applaud New
York’s fast action, because this sense of urgency is exactly what is needed to bring
infrastructure projects to construction and achieve clean energy and climate goals.”
“NYSERDA’s issuance today of a major solicitation, providing market-based offtake
opportunities for both early and advanced stage offshore wind projects, offers crucial and
timely support for New York’s rapidly developing clean energy economy,” said Fred Zalcman,
director of the New York Offshore Wind Alliance. “Actions speak louder than words, and we
applaud the Hochul Administration for providing, through this expedited RFP, a clear and
unambiguous statement of support for offshore wind as an essential part of New York’s
evolution towards a carbon-free grid.”
