NYLCV President Julie Tighe Reacts to Federal Approval of Sunrise Wind

Today is a great day for the future of clean energy in New York and the United States! We are thrilled that the Biden Administration and BOEM approved Sunrise Wind to become the nation’s next commercial-scale offshore wind development. The Sunrise Wind project is a major step on New York’s path to greening the grid and achieving the goals set out in the CLCPA. But what’s more — and at a time when the climate fight demands more action — this announcement demonstrates we are not just talking about clean energy, we are delivering on it, and it further solidifies New York as a national leader in renewable energy development. We applaud Orsted on this news and we salute Governor Hochul for her bold environmental leadership.
