The Association for a Better Long Island (ABLI) has endorsed a proposal by Deepwater Wind to build a 200MW wind farm some 30 miles off the east end of Long Island.
 
Faced with the burden of utility bills that threatens the competitive position of the Long Island economy, their membership seeks and supports those initiatives that will strategically lessen their dependency on fossil fuels and address the seasonal commodity price spikes that seriously harm every energy consumer. This wind farm proposal will tackle these problems, and the association is urging the Long Island Power Authority to proceed with all due speed in making this proposal a reality. Deepwater Wind plans for all transmission cables from the wind farm to be buried deep below existing roads and under shoreline features, with no overhead cables or poles. Construction could begin as early as 2017, with commercial operations by 2018. The wind farm will be "over the horizon," and not visible from any point on Long Island.
