Governor Cuomo proposed the largest offshore wind commitment in the nation: up to 2.4 GW by 2030, enough to power 1.25 million homes in the State. Offshore wind is critical to meeting the Clean Energy Standard. Developing it cost-effectively and responsibly will benefit all New Yorkers, build robust infrastructure, and create new jobs. NYSERDA will work with coastal communities and the fishing and maritime industries to identify new sites to be included in New York’s Offshore Wind Master Plan and develop existing ones.
