The Power Authority’s generation mix ranges from two of the nation’s largest hydropower producers to demonstration projects using clean renewable technologies such as fuel cells, solar photovoltaic systems and microturbines. NYPA has been in the forefront of solar development in New York State. PV arrays will be located at schools, municipal and government facilities. NYPA also supports the development of clean wind power in New York State. We're exploring, with partners, the development of an offshore wind farm in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Long Island.
