Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced $55 million for energy storage including commercial and residential storage projects on Long Island. This program will be launched with an initial rollout of nearly $15 million in incentives from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. Energy storage projects supported by this Long Island initiative will advance progress toward achieving New York's target of 3,000 megawatts of energy storage deployed by 2030 - the equivalent to powering 40 percent of New York's homes. Today's announcement supports Governor Cuomo's Green New Deal - a nation-leading clean energy jobs agenda putting New York on a path to carbon neutrality.
