Clean Energy

The South Fork Wind Farm will generate enough energy to power 50,000 homes, displacing millions of tons of air pollutants each year and helping to jumpstart a local offshore wind industry.

Healthy Communities

All of the project’s electrical cables on the island will be buried beneath existing roads, and – as the project will be located 30 miles off the coast of Montauk – the wind farm will not be visible from Long Island’s beaches.

A Good Neighbor

In addition to providing the most cost-effective source of new power supply to address the area’s growing energy needs, Deepwater Wind has committed to making investments in local infrastructure and economic development opportunities. The goal: to leave the area better than we found it.

 

SOUTH FORK WIND FARM

WHAT:  A new 15-turbine offshore wind farm and state-of-the-art transmission system that will generate enough clean energy to power 50,000 average homes and offset of tons of emissions each year.

WHERE: The South Fork Wind Farm will be located in the Atlantic Ocean 35 miles east of Montauk Point, out of sight from Long Island beaches.  Its transmission system will deliver power to the local grid in the Town of East Hampton, NY.

WHEN:  Onshore and offshore construction is planned to begin in 2021, with the wind farm coming online in 2022.

WHY:  Power needs on the South Fork are growing faster than anywhere else on Long Island.  In 2015, PSEG/LIPA issued a request for proposals to address this specific need, and more than 20 proposals were received.  The South Fork Wind Farm was selected because it was part of a portfolio that was found to be most cost-effective solution.
