New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced plans to build 22 renewable energy projects, much of them solar-power facilities, as the state aspires to achieve a zero-emission grid by 2040. 

The projects should generate enough power to serve 620,000 New York homes for at least 20 years, spur $2.7 billion in private investments and create more than 3,000 jobs in the state, Hochul said in a statement on Thursday.
