Project Benefits and Needs

Proposed by a subsidiary for NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, the 50-megawatt East Point Energy Center will power New York with clean, renewable energy.

Benefits for the Local Community

The East Point Energy Center is expected to deliver new jobs and economic development to Schoharie County and the Town of Sharon.

Local and State Leadership

The East Point Energy Center is expected to position Schoharie County as a leader in renewable energy and help New York meet its renewable energy goals.

  • Governor Cuomo announced that New York should produce half of its total power from renewable sources by 2030, and projects like this will help meet that need.
  • This new source of clean, renewable power produces no air or water pollution and is in line with the state’s Clean Energy Standard and Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) initiative, which are fostering new opportunities for renewable power that will help New York transform its energy generation system.
