In October 2021, the Astoria Power Plant's construction permits for gas turbine upgrades were denied because it was not in line with the state of New York's climate movements. NRG Energy continued to maintain the plant would have been moving to run on hydrogen power in the future without providing a detailed timeline. As of September 2022, NRG Energy was focusing on connecting offshore wind energy to the gas plant's grid.
