New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has approved what will be the largest U.S. offshore wind farm when it’s built off the east end of Long Island. It will generate enough electricity to power more than 50,000 homes on Long Island’s South Fork.
The South Fork Wind Farm will consist of 15 wind turbines with 90 megawatts (MW) of capacity. While the project still needs to complete its permitting process, construction could start as early as 2019 and it may be operational as early as 2022.
