    The Next Big Step For U.S. Ocean Wind

    Nation’s Largest Offshore Wind Farm Will Be Built Off Long Island

    Diane Cardwell, January 25, 2017 (NY Times)

    “…[The Long Island Power Authority approved the nation’s largest offshore wind farm for the waters between the eastern tip of Long Island and Martha’s Vineyard…[The $740 million project will have as many as 15 turbines, which will not be visible from onshore, and be] capable of powering 50,000 average homes…[ The power authority will buy all of the project’s output over 20 years at about the $0.16/kWh cost of other renewable energy projects…[and] add $1.19 a month to the average customer bill…[Developer Deepwater Wind could eventually build up to 200 turbines in] the 256-square-mile ocean site…[U.S. ocean wind has struggled] but the Long Island project signals that the long-awaited promise of a new, lower-carbon source of electricity is poised to become part of the national energy mix…It has been given new life by New York’s push to meet Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s goal of drawing 50 percent of the state’s power from renewable sources by 2030. That goal includes 2.4 gigawatts of offshore wind, enough to power 1.25 million homes…Big multinational developers like Statoil and Dong Energy are also investing in the business [and] snapping up leases for ocean parcels off Maryland, Massachusetts, and New York…” click here for more
