TRUELight's Clean Energy Market Series: New York

State GoalS

New York is set to become a even greener state as it ramps up its adoption rates for renewable energy. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo introduced a Green New Deal (GND) signing into law the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) in 2019. The plan establishes a carbon neutral economy by 2050, increasing the State’s renewable electricity goal from 50% to 70% by 2030. The states most aggressive plan will also seek 85% reduction in GHG emissions - power generation, industry, buildings, transportation, forestry, and waste by 2050. New York will reduce greenhouses gases by decarbonizing the electric grid with 100% carbon free electricity by 2040. Renewables and other technologies such as solar photovoltaics, wind (all), biomass, fuel cells using non-renewable fuels, tidal, hydroelectric (small), anaerobic digestion, fuel cells using renewable fuels will play a major factor with 70% allocated to generation to reduce energy price volatility. Offshore wind projects will produce 9,000 MW by 2035, which will support 100% decarbonization goals by 2040.  Energy storage will also reduce the need for fossil fuels by utilizing renewable generation of solar and wind target of 3,000 MW.

TRUELight's Clean Energy Market Series: Arizona

State GoalS

Arizona is committed to 100% zero-emission energy by 2050 with a 45% renewable energy portfolio by 2030. The state also plans to eliminate coal by 2031, which is seven years sooner than previously projected. This is big news since coal-fueled about as much or more of the state's electricity generation as nuclear power until 2018. Arizona's second-largest power plant, Navajo Generating Station, which was the largest coal-fired facility in the state also closed in late 2019.
