Please join the Guarini Center and a group of leading energy policy experts for a discussion on “After Indian Point: Alternatives for Low-Carbon Electricity in New York City.”
New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo has pledged to shutter the Indian Point Nuclear Plant north of New York City by April of 2021. The closure will effect major change to the New York City power system; Indian Point currently provides about 25 percent of the electricity consumed in New York City and Westchester and the electricity it supplies is carbon free. At this upcoming event, experts will examine low-carbon alternatives for replacing the lost capacity as well as regulatory and policy constraints impacting the City’s options.
