Offshore Wind Farm 30 Miles Off the Coast of Long Island Will Create Jobs & Power 50,000 Long Island Homes with Clean, Resilient and Affordable Energy

With a bold directive from Governor Cuomo, and enthusiastic support from elected officials, business, labor and environmental organizations, the Long Island Power Authority has selected what will be New York's first, and the nation's largest offshore wind farm.

The 90 megawatt Deepwater Wind project, to be located out of view about 30 miles south-east of Montauk, will turn our reliable offshore breezes into clean electricity which can power 50,000 homes. The wind farm will be connected to the island's electric grid by undersea and underground cables in East Hampton, the first town in the state to have established a 100% renewable energy goal.

But this is just the beginning. In his recent State-of-the State address on Long Island, Governor Cuomo laid out a bold vision for our transition to a clean energy future and an economy powered 100 percent by renewable energy. The Governor committed to 2,400 megawatt of offshore wind power by the year 2030 which will power 1.25 million homes. Click here for our joint news release.
