New York announced that it will procure another 2GW of offshore wind power for its Round 3 auction on top of the 4.3GW it has already contracted in previous tenders.

Although less than half of the 4.2GW the state could have sought, the tender will raise the state’s total contracted offshore wind power to over 6GW, far ahead of all other US states and bringing New York two-thirds of the way to meeting its 2035 capacity mandate of 9GW.
