Clean Path NY is focused on solving complex challenges and meeting New York State’s ambitious climate goals
This $11B infrastructure project will enable the delivery of more than 7.5 million megawatt-hours of emissions-free energy into New York City every year, 100% of which will be generated in New York State. The project will meet New York State’s ambitious climate goals, create 8,300 jobs and save New York State ratepayers millions in energy costs in its first 25 years of operation. Clean Path NY gives all New Yorkers access to renewable energy from New York State, and offers a solution to New York’s “Tale of Two Energy Grids.” The New York Power Authority (NYPA) and Forward Power – a joint venture between energyRe, LLC and Invenergy, LLC – are partners on the project.
Clean Path NY will help New York meet the mandate of the state’s landmark climate legislation, the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, which requires NY’s energy supply to be 70% carbon-free by 2030.
Clean Path NY is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to re-energize New York’s economy and invest in communities across the State through the action of transitioning our electric system to clean energy sources. Executed in partnership with union labor, Clean Path NY will create over 8,300 jobs across the State while enhancing air quality and community health outcomes, and providing investment opportunities for the benefit of frontline communities in environmental justice areas.

About Clean Path NY
This $11B clean infrastructure project comprised of over 20 wind and solar generation projects – all located in New York State - and a new 175-mile, underground transmission line, will enable the delivery of more than 7.5 million megawatt-hours of emissions-free energy into New York City every year. The project will help ensure New York State meets its nation-leading climate goals while creating over 8,300 jobs, and saving New York State ratepayers millions each year in energy costs in its first 25 years of operation. Environmental justice is at the core of the Clean Path NY project and we believe the new green economy must benefit all New Yorkers. The New York Power Authority (NYPA) and Forward Power – a joint venture between energyRe, LLC and Invenergy, LLC – are partners on the project.
