The Energy Highway Task Force's blueprint for a comprehensive plan that will add up to 3,200 megawatts of additional electric generation and transmission capacity and clean power generation was presented to Governor Andrew Cuomo this week.

The comprehensive plan uses up to $5.7 billion in private investments. The 3,200 megawatts outlined in this blueprint would provide enough energy to power approximately 3.2 million homes.

The Energy Highway Initiative, introduced in the 2012 State of the State address, is a centerpiece of the governor's Power New York agenda.

It was put in place to ensure that New York’s energy grid is the most advanced in the nation and promotes increased business investment in the state.
