In Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s May 26, 2020 daily briefing related to the COVID-19 pandemic, he emphasized that rebuilding the State’s economy will include major investments in renewable energy and transmission upgrades. Specifically, the Governor’s presentation emphasized that the State would “jumpstart the future” by, among other things, increasing renewable energy “production Upstate with building of new cross-state transmission cables.” The Governor’s statement follows on the heels of the May 14 New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) Order On Transmission Planning Pursuant to the Accelerated Renewable Energy Growth and Community Benefit Act, (the “Transmission Planning Order”), which kickstarted implementation of the provisions of the Accelerated Renewable Energy Growth and Community Benefit Act (the “Act”) with respect to distribution and transmission upgrades, capital expenditures and planning. Specifically, the Transmission Planning Order reviews the legislative directives of the Act, immediately implements certain mandates and outlines the additional actions the Commission plans to pursue in order to fulfill the objectives of the Act over the next several months.
