Offshore Wind, Clean Energy Targets, and Our Role Preparing the Grid for New Resources

The state’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) mandates that 70% of our electricity come from renewable energy resources by 2030. To put this in perspective, last year about 28% of our energy was generated from renewable resources.

How Solar on Dispatch Adds Flexibility to a Clean Energy Resource

Renewable resources offer both benefits and challenges to grid operators. Resources such as wind energy and solar power are intermittent, meaning energy production is dependent upon weather conditions.

Our Role Expanding Transmission to Meet the Needs of a Clean Energy Grid

Transmission developers are making the biggest investment to the energy grid in a generation, investing $2 billion on upgrading transmission lines around the state. These multiple projects, which will help prepare us for the grid of the future, came about in part through our work in planning for future needs and working with developers and regulators.
