ACP Statement on NYSPSC Offshore Wind Ruling

The American Clean Power Association (ACP) released the following statement from ACP CEO Jason Grumet after the New York State Public Service Commission (NYSPSC) denied petitions requesting inflation adjustments for wind and solar energy projects in New York:

“With one shortsighted decision, the NYSPSC has thrown New York’s environmental and clean energy future into peril. Absent a robust offshore wind industry, it will not be possible for New York State to achieve its climate or environmental justice goals. Moreover, critical economic benefits from new manufacturing facilities and the revitalization of ports will be squandered along with the creation of good paying union jobs. New York State has been a national leader in the clean energy transition. We urge New York State to maintain its clean energy commitment and reconsider this decision.”
