The New York Energy Highway Task Force, appointed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to implement the energy highway initiative, issued a request for information on April 11.
The RFI seeks ideas for potential projects, including various aspects of potential electric generation and transmission projects, from private developers, investor-owned utilities, and the financial community.
“Building a new energy highway for New York State will not only create thousands of jobs, but lay a new foundation for future economic growth,” Cuomo said in a statement.
A conference for respondents will be held on April 19 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Tarrytown, N.Y.
Responses to the RFI are due on May 30.
The task force will issue an “Energy Highway Action Plan” this summer, following its review of the RFI responses.
