The state of New York now finds itself facing a big, big energy test. It’s just announced the phase out of a mammoth nuclear energy plant just up the Hudson River from New York City.

But now it has to replace all that power, and it’s committed to doing so in a low-carbon way. We will likely see this test play out across the country, as more and more aging nuclear plants find themselves on the energy endangered list.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
