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.

Healthy Communities

We are working with the fishing community, environmental advocates and many federal, state and local regulators to ensure that the project is designed, built and operated as safely and responsibly as possible.

A Good Neighbor

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.



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.
