Two area projects support renewable energy goal

MID-HUDSON, NY – Two of 11 large-scale renewable energy projects in New York are located in the Hudson Valley and provide strong support for the Clean Energy Standard that 50 percent of the state’s electricity come from renewable energy sources by 2030. A total of $360 million will be divvied up among the 11 projects to leverage almost $1 billion in private sector investment for clean technology projects including wind, solar, fuel cell and hydroelectric installations. At Swinging Bridge in Sullivan County, Eagle Creek Hydro Power LLC will add 0.85 MW to an existing hydroelectric facility in the Town of Lumberland resulting in a total installed capacity of more than seven megawatts.
