Largest US Offshore Wind Project Progresses

The largest offshore wind farm in the US received approval to be built in the Atlantic off Long Island. The 90MW project, developed by Deepwater Wind, will generate enough electricity to power 50,000 homes. It is the first project in New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s goal to generate 50 percent of the state’s power from renewables by 2030, which includes developing 2.4GW of offshore wind. NYTimes
