Con Edison to Build New Clean Energy Plant in Brooklyn
On Tuesday, Con Edison broke ground on an $810 million clean energy facility in the Vinegar Hill section of Brooklyn.
"Ultimately, the hub will help distribute power to a new Gateway Park Substation in Canarsie and will serve the needs of the city and the expansion of JFK Airport, and MTA's electrification program. Think electric buses and all the electric they'll need. And it will spur Brooklyn's amazing growth," said Tim Cawley, Con Edison’s chairman and CEO.
This station will provide clean energy to some 750,000 homes across Brooklyn and Queens.
