Support the South Fork Wind Farm!
Since this project was proposed in 2015, we have been increasingly active in the East Hampton community, listening to the concerns of folks from Montauk to Wainscott, and working with the town board and trustees.
Key Facts About the South Fork Wind Farm:
- The South Fork has a power supply need, and the South Fork Wind Farm was selected through a competitive bidding process as the most cost-effective way to address it.
- The project will help avoid the need for additional fossil fired power, defer the need for overhead transmission, and help East Hampton and Southampton Towns meet their 100% renewable energy goal.
- All of the project's electrical cables on the island will be buried beneath existing roads, and – as the project will be located 30 miles off the coast of Montauk – the wind farm will not be visible from Long Island's beaches.
