Offshore Wind: Letters of Support

The organizations below (and others) have been hard at work advocating for construction of the first Long Island offshore wind park, as well as other large-scale renewable energy projects. Letters are listed in PDF form below the logos. 




"Our national, state, and local organizations are united in support of responsible development of offshore wind power, and we urge New York to take pride in leading the nation toward this shining clean energy frontier." 

"U.S. can benefit from years of lessons learned across the Atlantic and start America’s next energy chapter with the advanced technology and expertise available today to build projects far offshore, where the stronger wind resource provides even greater environmental and economic benefits."

"Now is the time to deepen the commitment to wind energy resources, both onshore and off. New wind energy development will not only enable New York to get back on track in meeting our renewable energy targets, but will also provide emission-free power, help us guard against volatile fossil fuel prices, and contribute substantially to local economic development."

"Investing in a large, utility-scale offshore wind project as part of the 280 MW RFP would address many of the stated key objectives of the [Utility 2.0] Plan by increasing fuel diversity, modernizing Long Island’s clean energy infrastructure, enhancing system resiliency and reliability, and creating jobs on Long Island."
