The electric industry is in transition. Climate change mitigation is a global priority. Renewable energy resources cost less than ever before. Energy innovation is growing by leaps and bounds.
Yet energy infrastructure is aging, extreme weather is more frequent, and the energy industry is still based on a 20th century model.
This was never clearer than in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
Seeing the effects of the storm firsthand, Governor Cuomo sought to rebuild, strengthen, and modernize New York’s energy system while bringing economic growth to New York. His strategy: Reforming the Energy Vision.
The Governor has tasked the New York Public Service Commission (PSC), the New York Energy Research and Develoment Authority (NYSERDA), the New York Power Authority (NYPA), and the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) to work together to make the Governor's strategy for a clean, resilient, and more affordable energy system a reality, while actively spurring energy innovation, bringing new investments into the State, and improving consumer choice.
