New York is making up to $15 million available for projects that will help improve the state’s resiliency, efficiency, and overall performance of its electric grid to save on energy and costs to combat climate change. According to Governor Cuomo's Office, the initiative is administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and promotes the development of a high performing smart grid that will accommodate a diverse supply of clean energy generation resources, enhance overall electric grid performance, and enable customers to reduce their energy costs, energy consumption, and environmental impacts. Concept papers will be accepted through July 18.
