Offshore wind energy is poised to become a major source of affordable, renewable power for New York State. Meeting New York’s 2030 offshore wind goals will result in supplying 2,400 megawatts of clean power for the State, enough to power 1.2 million homes.

Benefits of offshore wind include:

  • Clean, locally produced power where demand is highest
  • Significant investments in coastal infrastructure and communities
  • The opportunity for thousands of short- and long-term skilled construction, manufacturing, and operations jobs
  • Renewable energy generation close to a densely populated region
  • Diversified electricity supply

New York State is working diligently to ensure that offshore wind is developed in the most responsible and cost-effective way possible. With a world-class workforce, unmatched intellectual capital, physical infrastructure and financial institutions, and national clean energy policy leadership, New York plans to become a hub for the United States’ emerging offshore wind energy industry.
