The Time For Powerful Actions

The Energy Highway is a far-reaching initiative to modernize New York’s statewide energy system, including electric transmission and generation construction, development of renewable energy sources, and upgrades to electric and natural gas infrastructure. The 13 actions presented in the Energy Highway Blueprint (issued in October 2012) includes a wide range of measures to provide up to 3,200 megawatts (MW) of additional electric generation and transmission capacity and clean power generation—enough to serve about 3 million homes—through up to $5.7 billion in private- and public-sector investments.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Energy Highway and Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) initiatives, as well as the newly-issued 2015 New York State Energy Plan, provide the roadmap and business model for the State’s 21st-century electric industry. The interconnectedness of the Energy Highway and REV initiatives and the State Energy Plan cannot be overstated, and together, they provide a multi-tiered approach for the State’s rapidly evolving electric system.
