Why Deepwater ONE

Good jobs

Employing hundreds of workers across the region during project construction, and dozens more in long-term maintenance and operations. Major construction activities will occur in New York and New England ports – turbine assembly, foundation fabrication and more.

Clean energy

Located in the best site for offshore wind in the United States. The first phase of this utility-scale project would supply Long Island, N.Y.’s East End with 200 megawatts of clean offshore wind from 35 of the latest-technology turbines. Located over the horizon, in the deep Atlantic Ocean waters of Rhode Island Sound – 30 miles east of Montauk, N.Y. Powering 120,000 homes with clean energy from a project far out of sight.

Eventually, this project would grow to nearly 200 turbines generating 1 gigawatt of clean energy — for multiple power markets in the region.

Healthy Communities

Displacing emissions of many tons of carbon from the atmosphere – providing a much-needed source of clean energy for Long Island’s East End and other East Coast population centers in the future.
