New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) released the New York Energy Highway Blueprint October 22. The plan recommends $5.7 billion in private investment to add 3,200 MW of electricity generating and transmission capacity, including $250 million in state funding to leverage an additional $425 million in private investments in renewable energy projects that would generate about 270 MW of power. Among other things, the plan calls for $1 billion in private investment to develop 1,000 MW of new electricity transmission capacity, $250 million to develop smart grid technologies, and the study of offshore wind development in the Atlantic Ocean
