Governor Andrew Cuomo just announced $165 million financing for New York State’s $1 billion Green Bank to attract private capital to an $85B market.  Once the initial funds are approved by the public service commission, the Green Bank will look for private sector financing to join the bank to fund clean energy projects (early 2014).  The money will go to technologies that are ready to be deployed, including more efficient chillers and voltage control devices to solar PV and combined heat and power systems.  “As a public-private partnership, the Green Bank will implement a pioneering approach that strategically and efficiently uses limited state resources to drive investment into critical areas of the economy,” Cuomo said in a statement. “With this initiative, we will promote job growth and business development, improve resiliency and air quality, and lower costs for consumers while providing them with greater choices and value for their money.”
