Statement from Deepwater Wind on New York City’s Request for Information for New Sources of Renewable Energy

“We applaud the de Blasio Administration for taking bold steps to fight climate change. This is the exact type of leadership we need to reduce the country’s reliance on fossil fuels and make our cities healthier places to live and work.

“The waters off New York City are home to one of the country’s best offshore wind resources, and tapping this cost-effective source of new power would do much to help New York City meet its 100-percent renewables goal – and to launch a new local industry.  We’re confident that our offshore wind solution could shape New York City’s energy future, and we’re ready to get to work.”
