Charlottesville, VA – December 6, 2018 – Apex Clean Energy today announced that its Heritage Wind project in the Town of Barre/Orleans County has been awarded a contract in the New York State Energy and Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) 2018 Clean Energy Standard Solicitation.
NYSERDA evaluates the economic viability of projects bidding for power offtake contracts, and Heritage Wind’s award demonstrates NYSERDA’s confidence in the project.
“Heritage Wind shows the promise and value of wind energy in New York,” said Mark Goodwin, president and chief executive officer of Apex. “With this award, the state is one step closer to its monumental clean energy goals. Apex is thrilled to play a role in helping New York achieve this milestone.”
Today’s announcement supports both New York’s goal and Governor Cuomo’s mandate for 50 percent of the Empire State’s electricity to come from renewable sources by 2030.
