Wind Initiative Moves Forward
A newly formed collaborative between the private sector and a host of New York State and New York City agencies issued, Tuesday, a Request for Information (RFI) marking the next step in the development of what could be the largest offshore wind farm proposal in the country.
In addition to the RFI, the Long Island- New York City Offshore Wind Collaborative also unveiled a new Web site designed to keep the wind industry, communities and stakeholders informed of the project's progress. The RFI may be viewed or downloaded from the new Web site by visiting www.linycoffshorewind.com. The Web site also features news about the project including a transmission interconnection study issued by LIPA and Con Edison in March.
The Long Island- New York City Offshore Wind Project is sponsored by a collaborative consisting of:
•Long Island Power Authority (LIPA)
•New York Power Authority (NYPA)
•The City of New York
•New York State Energy Research
and Development Authority
•The Port Authority of New York and
