Offshore Wind in New York
Offshore Wind Overview
Offshore wind is creating jobs and powering millions of homes in Europe, but the U.S. is yet to get a turbine in the water. However, upcoming decisions in New York could pave the way to bring this innovative renewable technology to the United States. Investing in offshore wind will both advance the nation’s transition away from polluting fossil fuels and jump start new industries, manufacturing and businesses that will grow our economy.
The run is happening as the Long Island Power Authority and PSEG Long Island consider a major investment that would not only power more than 120,000 homes with clean renewable energy, but could also be a tipping point for building a cutting-edge offshore wind farm on the Atlantic Coast.
