East Farmingdale, NY- On Wednesday New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced the state’s plan to increase the state’s number of off shore wind farms to help generate electricity for New Yorkers.
“New York is proud to continue leading the way in offshore wind development while establishing a blueprint for building a locally-based green economy,” Governor Hochul said. “Today we are putting words into action and making it clear that New York State is the national hub of the offshore wind industry. The clean energy transition is driving significant private investment and family-sustaining jobs in communities across the state, and we are setting ourselves up for success with a brighter and more sustainable future.”
