South Fork Wind Statement on NY PSC Article 7 Approval

South Fork Wind continues to move full-speed ahead, now reaching a major milestone with the approval of a key state permit needed to build this historic, first New York offshore wind farm. The New York Public Service Commission’s approval affirms that South Fork Wind can be built with minimal impact to the environment and the community, while at the same time helping the Town of East Hampton and New York State reach their clean-energy goals. We thank the PSC and its staff for its diligent review over a more than two-year period that included extensive analysis from experts across multiple state agencies and considerable input from the East Hampton community. We expect South Fork Wind to be fully permitted by January 2022, with construction activities ramping up soon thereafter and the wind farm in-operations by the end of 2023.
