Invenergy made major waves earlier this week with the announcement of a project over 700 MW in capacity, comprising four wind and two solar PV plants in five states, intended to feed the insatiable appetite for power on Long Island, New York while meeting New York Governor Cuomo’s 50% by 2030 renewable energy mandate.
The Clean Energy Link would route the electricity produced from these proposed plants through dedicated transmission lines, which would then run via underwater cable to a “net-zero” substation in Long Island.
And while Invenergy was sure to publish a high-resolution video and include quotes from no less than 17 politicians, labor and non-profit leaders and various stakeholders regarding the project, the developer has not yet signed any power contracts with off-takers. Invenergy reports that it does have site control and interconnection request for the projects.
As such, these projects are still in the early phases of development.
Update: This article was updated at 12 PM EST on October 27 to include information from Invenergy about the status of the projects, and thus to change the headline.
