Vineyard Wind Announces Liberty Wind Offshore Project Proposal to New York

The Liberty Wind proposal was submitted in response to the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s (NYSERDA) solicitation of offshore wind project proposals for supplying New York with clean, emission free offshore wind energy.

The Liberty Wind proposal by U.S. offshore wind developer Vineyard Wind includes three different options in size: A wind farm with 400, 800 or 1,200 MW capacity. The 1,200 megawatt project is the most cost-effective option for New York ratepayers and would be one of the largest offshore wind projects in the world. The Liberty Wind 1,200 megawatt project would supply enough emission free energy to power over 750,000 New York homes.

Liberty Wind will also bring substantial economic development and job creation benefits to New York, providing hundreds of millions of dollars in economic activity and thousands of jobs on Long Island, the Capitol Region, and in New York City.

Liberty Wind’s turbines will be located in federal waters 85 miles away from the nearest New York shore, and will not be visible from any New York shoreline. The project will deliver up to 1,200 megawatts of clean power directly to the New York grid at an existing substation on Long Island.

“Our team’s extensive offshore wind experience from around the world and nearby in New England, where we are building the nation’s first utility scale offshore wind project, allows us to deliver the best project for New York,” said Lars Thaaning Pedersen, CEO of Vineyard Wind. “Liberty Wind will bring clean energy at the lowest price to New York ratepayers along with substantial economic benefits for the state through investments in local infrastructure and businesses and by utilizing the state’s existing supply chain and workforce.”
