Offshore Wind

One of the nation's leading developers of offshore wind, serving as a catalyst for clean energy throughout the Northeast

We have secured at least 4,000 megawatts (MW) of offshore wind development opportunity in the Northeast in partnership with Ørsted, the world’s leading developer of offshore wind.

We continue to evaluate opportunities to maximize the value of our wind investments in partnership with states throughout the Northeast, and currently have the ability to more than double our commitment to offshore wind capacity within our existing lease areas — providing enough clean, renewable energy to power up to 2 million homes. 

Our leases offer significant competitive advantages, which include close proximity to the shore with shallow water and interconnection points in New England and New York.

In addition to these projects, many additional offshore wind projects in New England are planning to interconnect to our transmission system, allowing us to provide customers with even more clean, renewable energy while decarbonizing the electricity sector to meet state climate goals.

South Fork Wind received final approval in January 2022, the culmination of a multiyear effort, to begin construction of New York’s first offshore wind farm, expected to be complete in late 2023. This was only the second utility-scale federal approval in the country. We are currently leading onshore construction of this 130 MW offshore wind project, which will power approximately 70,000 homes once completed.

Additional projects in the permitting stage of development include Sunrise Wind and Revolution Wind, both of which will be built off the coast of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Together, these projects will provide approximately 1,760 MW of clean, renewable energy — enough to power more than 1 million homes across the region.

Offshore Wind Projects

South Fork Wind 

A 132MW offshore wind farm located 35 miles east of Montauk Point that will produce enough clean, renewable energy every year to power approximately 70,000 homes in New York.

Construction is expected to start in January of 2022 and fully operational in 2023.

Revolution Wind

A project contracted to produce a total of 704 MW of clean renewable energy for Connecticut and Rhode Island. Connecticut will receive 304 MW and Rhode Island will receive the remaining 400 MW, providing electricity for more than 350,000 homes.

The project is estimated to be fully operational in 2025.

Sunrise Wind

An approximately 924 MW offshore wind project that will supply clean, renewable energy to nearly 600,000 homes in New York.

Subject to U.S. BOEM’s Notice of Intent (NOI) schedule, we are currently estimating that Sunrise Wind will be fully operational in 2025.
