With the Indian Point nuclear facility scheduled to close next year, the downstate region that has relied on it for so long will be left facing a serious issue in its fight against climate change. Without an acceleration of clean energy and storage projects in the near term, the region risks increasing its reliance on fossil fuel generated power, degrading local air quality and undermining its fight against climate change.
Join us for this unique event during Climate Week NYC 2020 to examine some new major clean energy projects that will collectively reshape the downstate grid within the next 5 years and over several decades to come.
