Offshore wind has tremendous potential to power America’s communities, combat climate change and, in turn, protect wildlife like the endangered North Atlantic right whale that are vulnerable to the effects of rising sea temperatures. Our treasured wildlife is depending on strong leadership now to address climate change.
New York has a world-class offshore wind resource, has made the nation’s largest commitment to offshore wind development, and is on deck to host the second project in U.S. waters. Now is the time to create a clear and ambitious roadmap for making offshore wind power a pillar of New York’s clean energy future — and to ensure wildlife are protected every step of the way.
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority is currently writing an Offshore Wind Master Plan. Please add your name below to express support for a bold goal and a detailed plan to make this golden opportunity a reality for New York.
