The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has completed its environmental review of the proposed South Fork Wind project offshore New York and Rhode Island.
South Fork Wind is proposing to build an offshore wind energy project approximately 19 miles southeast of Block Island, Rhode Island, and 35 miles east of Montauk Point, New York. The project will deliver approximately 130MW of power to the South Fork of Long Island, New York. BOEM plans to issue a record of decision on whether to approve the proposed project in October.
