Sunrise Wind has received its Record of Decision (RoD) from the US Department of the Interior's Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). Additionally, Ørsted and Eversource announced they have jointly taken a final investment decision on Sunrise Wind, solidifying the commitment to build the project.
 
BOEM's issuance of the Record of Decision formally concludes its National Environmental Policy Act review process and precedes the anticipated approval of Sunrise Wind's construction and operations plan (COP), expected this summer.
 
New York State recently selected Sunrise Wind to negotiate a 25-year contract to provide reliable green energy to the state. The project is finalising agreements with New York’s energy agency, New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), on this offshore wind renewable energy certificates (OREC) contract.
 
As previously announced, Ørsted has agreed to acquire Eversource’s 50% ownership share of Sunrise Wind, becoming the project’s sole owner, subject to signing of an OREC contract with NYSERDA, finalisation of acquisition agreements, COP approval, and other relevant regulatory approvals. Eversource will remain contracted to lead the project’s onshore construction.
Sunrise Wind is located approximately 30 miles (48 km) east of Montauk, New York, USA.
