Statement from NYLCV on the Southfork Wind Farm

NYLCV released the following statement regarding state agencies signing the joint proposal to move the South Fork Wind Farm forward.

Julie Tighe, President of the New York League of Conservation Voters, said, “We applaud Governor Cuomo and the state agencies for advancing South Fork Wind and continuing to put New York on the path to a clean energy future. Whether it’s the hundreds of good-paying green economy jobs that will be created, the 70,000 homes and businesses that will be powered or the major boost we will get to move away from fossil fuels to fight the climate crisis, South Fork Wind is a transformative project at the center of New York’s clean energy portfolio. We are proud to play a role in its progress and look forward to seeing its completion and the many economic and environmental benefits it will yield for Long Island and the entire state of New York.”
