Press Release

Oct 20 2023

WASHINGTON DC, October 20, 2023 – The American Clean Power Association (ACP) released the following statement from ACP Director of Eastern Region State Affairs Moira Cyphers, after New York Governor Hochul vetoed the Planned Offshore Wind Transmission Act today:  

“Governor Hochul must get serious about reaching 70% clean energy by 2030. Today, she dealt a significant blow to the state’s own goals by vetoing legislation that would allow a local government to negotiate for itself in seeking the delivery of clean, affordable power generated by offshore wind. New York is coming dangerously close to serving a death knell for the promise of offshore wind development in the region. We urge Governor Hochul to support this critical industry and the thousands of jobs it will create with real action. She must put New York back on track to developing these critical clean energy projects and living up to the state’s promise of being a clean energy leader.”
