Offshore Wind Power


Offshore wind has finally arrived in the United States! The nation’s first offshore wind farm just completed construction and is expected to come online in November of 2016. Deepwater Wind’s Block Island Project utilizes five 6 MW turbines to provide 30 MW of power to Block Island and the Rhode Island mainland. This major milestone for offshore wind in the United States demonstrates the growing momentum for this clean, large-scale and cost-effective source of energy for the eastern seaboard.


ACE NY and the New York Offshore Wind Alliance (NYOWA) are working with members through advocacy and public education to realize the extraordinary potential of offshore wind for the Empire State.
