WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced $30 million in available funding under the NY-Sun Competitive Photovoltaic Program to further stimulate large-scale solar and biogas projects in Westchester County and the Hudson Valley.
“Expanding the use of clean, renewable power in the Hudson Valley will help make New York a greener state,” Cuomo said in a statement. “Large scale solar and biogas installations are both good for the environment and lower electricity prices for consumers. Renewable energy, including biogas, is a cornerstone of New York’s clean energy economy and helps the State meet energy demand in an environmentally friendly way that protects the well-being of all New Yorkers.”
With the, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority is seeking proposals for Photovoltaic and renewable biogas systems larger than 200 kilowatts to be installed at businesses, factories, municipal buildings and other larger commercial and industrial customers in the Hudson Valley as well as in the five boroughs of New York City. Proposals are due on Dec. 30 and projects must be installed by April 30.
