On October 27, Urban Green hosted developers of two projects with one goal: inject New York City with an unprecedented amount of clean electricity. Thanks to NYSERDA’s Tier 4 program, Clean Path NY and Champlain Hudson Power Express have the chance to deliver 18 million MWh of renewable energy to the city. Developers of these transformational projects came together to discuss New York City’s role in meeting statewide climate goals and to share their plans to clean up the power grid.
