Montauk Wind Farm Rejected

Montauk Wind Farm Rejected

27East.com: The Long Island Power Authority Board of Trustees on Wednesday morning (Dec. 17) decided not to move forward with a proposed offshore wind farm 30 miles off the coast of Montauk as part of an overall plan to develop more renewable energy projects.

While LIPA has expressed plans to add 280 megawatts of renewable energy to the utility’s resource, a resolution at the end of the board meeting named several solar energy firms that will add up to only 122 megawatts of renewable energy for Long Island.

The resolution did not include a proposal for an offshore wind project, much to the disappointment of many advocates of green energy.
