Wind Energy – New York
Ørsted and Eversource announced they have submitted a joint proposal in response to New York State’s third round of offshore wind solicitations.
Together, Ørsted and Eversource are building South Fork Wind, New York’s first offshore wind farm, which broke ground early last year and will be operational with 130 MW in 2023, and Sunrise Wind, a 924 MW project that will deliver clean energy to New York in late 2025.
As the New York leader in offshore wind, the joint venture has developed extensive partnerships across the state and consulted with dozens of community organizers, labour leaders, and local elected officials to develop a bid for a new project that best meets the needs of New Yorkers.
Under Governor Hochul’s leadership, New York will build upon its nation-leading pipeline of contracted offshore wind projects. Already, the state has become a leader in developing an offshore wind supply chain, begun training the future offshore wind workforce, and committed $500 million in investments for offshore wind ports, manufacturing and supply chain infrastructure to support this growing industry.
