The PSC is currently considering a petition filed on June 5, 2020 by NYSERDA to implement the proposed Clean Energy Resources Development and Incentives Program - also called the Build-Ready Program -- to facilitate the development of renewable generation in New York. As part of the Build-Ready Program, NYSERDA also proposes new initiatives to foster and encourage local understanding of the importance of renewable energy and the value that it can bring to local communities, including environmental justice as a key consideration of such initiatives. Comments will be accepted until August 24, 2020.
