New York Offshore Wind Farm Advanced
New York Ag Connection - 02/20/2024

The offshore wind farm will be in federal waters on the outer continental shelf about 12 nautical miles (22.2km) south of Long Island, New York and 17 nautical miles (31.5km) east of Long Branch, New Jersey.

The Empire Wind project will include up to 147 offshore wind turbines, two offshore substations, and the associated cables needed to transport the electricity.

Offshore construction is anticipated to begin in 2024 and be completed within four years.

There will also be onshore components associated with the Empire Wind project that are not addressed in this air permit.

Onshore components are being addressed in separate federal, state, and local permitting or government processes.

EPA conducted an air quality analysis that reportedly showed the main air quality impacts of the project will occur during construction and will be offshore over the water area around the project.
