We’re committed to playing a leading role in accelerating the nation’s clean energy transition. Our vision includes retiring and replacing New York’s largest fossil fuel plant with renewables, and repurposing a former coal-fired power plant in New Jersey into a modern gateway for offshore wind. All of this with a focus on delivering environmental justice and providing pathways to clean energy jobs for our workforce.

DELIVERING A RENEWABLE RAVENSWOOD
We are working to redevelop the Ravenswood Generating Station as a new renewable energy hub – a Renewable Ravenswood. This project will help New York State and New York City achieve their nation-leading climate goals, in historically disadvantaged communities.
This innovative clean energy solution positions the 27-acre waterfront Ravenswood industrial site to serve as a central hub connecting clean energy sources, like offshore wind and upstate wind and solar, directly into New York City’s electric grid in a coordinated, planned, and reliable manner.Read more about our plans for a Renewable Ravenswood
60 Years of Reliable Service
Rise Light & Power owns the Ravenswood Generating Station, New York City’s largest power generation facility, and the former Werner Generating Station in South Amboy, New Jersey. When New York City was hit by storms and hurricanes, Ravenswood was there—continuing to deliver reliable, affordable energy to New York homes and businesses. Today, we are modernizing these facilities in the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area, retiring outdated equipment and investing in clean energy infrastructure. These investments will help us continue to play a vital role in delivering for our neighbors across the region—as we have done since 1963. Ravenswood employs over 100 people, a majority of which are proud members of UWUA Local 1-2.Learn more »

For the sake of our home and our neighbors, we’re working to address both.Learn more »
