in support of offshore wind
WHY: The New York State Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA) is holding a series of public information meetings – three next week on Long Island and
three next month in New York City.
New York is moving toward dramatically increasing its reliance on renewable energy. Offshore wind will have to be a major component if that objective is to be met.
The broad, diverse coalition of Long Island leaders coming together on Monday for the news conference and the first NYSERDA Public Information Meeting (6pm Monday at the LIA office) are working collectively to support the development of significant offshore wind for Long Island. Offshore wind is a clean, reliable energy resource that will improve public health and the quality of life on Long Island, ensure electricity needs are met and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.
