New York Beyond Coal
A filing by the New York State Electric and Gas company validated long-standing concerns that a bailout for the uneconomical Cayuga plant is unnecessary and a bad deal for bill payers. NYSEG’s proposal, filed with the Public Service Commission (PSC) late Friday, affirms the need for transmission upgrades in the Auburn area at a much lower cost than bailing out the Cayuga coal plant.
New York is set to lead the way on renewable energy – but we need you to make sure it happens. Governor Cuomo has already led on solar through his 10-year commitment NY-SUN. Now his Department of Public Service is looking for your input as they plan our transition to a renewable energy future. The Governor’s "Reforming the Energy Vision" sets a plan a future full of distributed solar, battery storage, and energy efficiency – but we can still do better.
