Developing wind energy. I'm for it.


With an eye on boosting the local economy through wind farms, the Empire and Garden States are teaming up to sell off close to a half-million offshore acres for wind energy development, officials announced Wednesday.

Next month, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) will hold an auction for more than 480,000 acres offshore New York and New Jersey, bringing major developments in wind energy and job creation to the region.

The location is known as New York Bight, the coastal region between Long Island and New Jersey shores. On Feb. 23, the auction will allow offshore wind developers to bid on six lease areas— sales could result in 5.6 to 7 gigawatts of offshore wind energy, which is enough to power nearly 2 million homes.

Governor Kathy Hochul joined the Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and others to discuss the importance of this historic initiative.
