New study shows that New York State is ready for more wind power

The New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) has recently released a report entitled Growing Wind: NYISO Wind Generation Study, which examines New York's capability to handle an increase from 1,265 to 8,000 megawatts of wind energy by 2018.  The study has found that with investments in transmission upgrades and regulation services New York is capable of addressing any operational requirements associated with the integration of wind generation.

The findings come as good news as NYISO currently has more than 7,000 megawatts of proposed wind projects to be connected to the grid, putting New York State well on track of its 2015 goal of having 30% of electricity supplied by renewable resources.
