Milestone: New York’s First Offshore Wind Turbine Installed

New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced today the successful installation of the first offshore wind turbine for the South Fork Wind project.

The installation marks a critical milestone in what will be the first completed utility-scale wind farm in the United States.

Once fully operational, the 130-megawatt (MW) offshore wind farm will generate enough renewable energy to power approximately 70,000 homes on Long Island, eliminating up to six million tons of carbon emissions over a 25-year period—equivalent to taking 60,000 cars off the road annually.
