East Hampton boards approve wind farm agreements

Both of East Hampton’s elected government bodies this week gave their stamps of approval to the landing of the South Fork Wind Farm power supply cable at Beach Lane in Wainscott – and the $29 million the agreements will bring the town. Some members of the Town Board and the East Hampton Town Trustees praised the step as putting the town’s imprimatur on the first step toward a new era of energy production in the United States that they said is . . .

Borrello argues against freshwater wind turbines

Approval of a clean air and water amendment to the state constitution took a local turn earlier this week. State Sen. George Borrello, R-Sunset Bay, voted against the amendment, which passed the state Senate in a 48-14 vote. While Borrello said he agrees with the aspirational goal of protecting clean air and water, he worried about unintended consequences of such a constitutional amendment, including a myriad of litigation. Rather than argue the amendment, Borrello used the opportunity to argue against . . . Complete story »

Cuomo’s unrelenting charge for green

An article in the Observer was headlined, “Cuomo pushing for renewable energy to help economy and to fight global warming.” While Chautauqua County has been going green for the last few years with the installation of wind turbines and solar fields, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo is making a larger push state-wide. Cuomo proposed a $26 billion public-private sector partnerships to build nearly 100 renewable projects. He states that our program provides a diversity of projects, styles and locations. Sixty-eight of . . . Complete story »

East Hampton Town okays offshore wind farm agreement

Over the objections of one member and after a contentious discussion, the East Hampton Town Board voted on Thursday to execute an easement and host-community agreement with the developers of the proposed South Fork Wind farm. Thursday’s vote followed several years of discussion, debate, and public comment on the proposal that would see an installation of up to 15 turbines in a federal lease area approximately 35 miles off Montauk Point. The offshore installation remains the subject of furious opposition, . . . Complete story »

Wind farm easements appear to be on track

Despite the lingering skepticism of one elected official and the opposition of some Wainscott residents, the East Hampton Town Board is poised to complete easement agreements with the developers of the proposed South Fork Wind farm. The easements, along town-owned land, will allow the wind farm’s transmission cable to land in Wainscott and run along a path to the Long Island Power Authority substation in East Hampton. On Tuesday, the board continued to debate the plan. The 132-megawatt installation, to . . . Complete story »

More wind farms on the horizon

As East Hampton prepares the final agreements to allow the South Fork Wind Farm cable to come ashore in Wainscott, the future of offshore wind off Long Island’s coast has become much more crowded. Two massive offshore wind farms with more than 90 turbines each, to be built by the firm Equinor, received approval from New York State in early January, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced in his State of the State Address Jan. 13. They include the Empire Wind 2 . . . Complete story »

State award will more than double the number of wind turbines planned for South Shore

New York State’s decision last week to award two “massive” offshore wind power contracts to Norwegian energy giant Equinor will more than double the size of a planned wind farm off the coast of Long Island. It also promises “substantial” upgrades to a section of the electric grid at Oceanside. The plan, announced by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo last week as part of an expansive post-COVID-19 green economy, would bring the number the number of turbines expected to be spinning . . . Complete story »

Andrew Cuomo’s poisonous green dreams

Despite declaring that the state’s economy is in a recession, Gov. Cuomo this week still announced a new $26 billion clean-energy plan that’s guaranteed to make it that much harder to get good times rolling again. “We must replace fossil-fuel plants with clean power. There are no ifs, ands or buts about it, and now is the time to do it,” Cuomo said. Actually, the time to do it is after alternatives become less than insanely expensive. New York’s energy . . .

Climate activists and fishing industry clash over Long Island wind farm

On Long Island, the East Hampton Town Trustees met this week to hear comments from community stakeholders on draft agreements with the developers of the South Fork Wind Farm. Orsted and Eversource have agreed to pay the town nearly $29 million over 25 years to bury a high-powered transmission cable under Wainscott Beach. Labor representatives say it’s a win-win for the trustees to sign. Mariah Dignan is the Long Island organizer for Climate Jobs New York. “This is the clear . . . Complete story »

North Country to play big role in Cuomo’s green energy agenda

The North Country figures to play an important – and possibly controversial – role in Governor Andrew Cuomo’s green energy agenda, which he laid out in his third State of the State speech Wednesday. “We can establish ourselves as the nation’s leader for renewable energy innovation and production,” Cuomo said in a virtual address, “and we will secure the jobs of the future right here at home for New Yorkers.” Cuomo announced plans for 100 new large-scale renewable projects, many . . .
