Statement on South Fork Wind Farm cable landing

The New York League of Conservation Voters released the following statement in response to the NYS Public Service Commission (PSC) approval of the South Fork Wind Farm’s cable landing:

Julie Tighe, President of the New York League of Conservation Voters, said, “New York is on the precipice of building an economy that is centered on clean energy and fighting climate change. That effort hinges on the success of offshore wind. By advancing the South Fork Wind Farm, the Public Service Commission is both encouraging the growth of renewable energy, establishing New York as a hub for this emerging industry and positioning Long Island as a hub for family-sustaining green jobs. We applaud this approval and will continue to work with all stakeholders as the project moves forward.”
