Essential to cost-effective and responsible development

There is enormous wind energy potential off the Atlantic coast, particularly an area south of Long Island and southeast of New York City called the New York Bight. Offshore Wind will be one of New York's main sources of electricity as the state progresses towards 70% renewable energy by 2030.
