Governor Cuomo has committed to secure 50% of New York's electricity from clean energy by 2030 (50 by 30). On Long Island, that means the current clean energy supply must increase 17-fold. No other project gets Long Island closer, faster to the 50 by 30 mandate.
TRIPLE LONG ISLAND’S RENEWABLE ENERGY
The Clean Energy Link’s portfolio consists of three new wind and four new solar farms, generating 677 MWs, spread over 42,600 acres.
Combat Climate Change
By including projects hundreds of miles apart, this portfolio frees Long Island from relying on a single region’s weather for its clean power supply, helping to fight climate change more effectively.
PROTECT LONG ISLAND’S open SPACE
The project’s footprint on Long Island will consist of a "net-zero" converter station on a 3.5-acre parcel of land, preserving Long Island’s open space.
