Tonio Burgos & Associates is providing DC support for Clean Path New York, which has proposed an $11B emissions-free energy transmission project comprised of more than 20 wind and solar installations throughout the Empire State.
A new underground 175-mile transmission line will deliver more than 7.5M megawatt-hours of power into NYC, according to the organization.
Clear Path claims the project will create more than 8,300 jobs, save ratepayers' money and help the state meet its ambitious climate goals.
The Hudson Yards-based entity is a partnership between New York Power Authority and Forward Power, a joint venture between energyRe and Invenergy.
Tonio Burgos, a long-time aide to New York Governor Mario Cuomo and one-time Port Authority of New York and New Jersey commissioner, spearheads the Clear Path team.
He is joined by Steve Fier, TBA's DC president; Tim Ursprung, VP-legislative affairs; and Kristen Walsh, aide to NY Senators Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton and Kirsten Gillibrand.
