“This approach balances our need to be a leader in supporting clean energy to tackle climate change which threatens our coastlines and overcomes the challenges of producing large scale renewable power on Long Island."
“The Clean Energy Link brings Long Island closer to meeting Governor Cuomo’s 50 by 30 mandate, while also preserving Nassau County’s open space. It’s a win-win for both the community and the environment.”
Suffolk County Legislature
“A project like the Clean Energy Link is long overdue for Long Island. This important effort will bring clean energy at an affordable price, and at a scale that makes a difference for the environment.”
Long Island Association
“Long Island and all of New York need out-of-the-box thinking to meet the challenge of 50 by 30. I applaud Invenergy’s innovative portfolio approach and all projects that can bring renewable energy to Long Island at affordable prices.”
Long Island Pine Barrens Society
“There is a clear understanding amongst Long Islanders that we need more green energy sources. This has been a priority for nearly a decade, but a persistent challenge given Long Island’s limited open space. Now Long Islanders can access renewable energy while preserving our open space. It’s a win-win.”
New York League of Conservation Voters
“Long Island has never had an opportunity like the Clean Energy Link. In a single stroke, the Clean Energy Link will more than triple the green energy supply to Long Island. It’s a big step forward for Long Island and means we can stop talking about meeting the Governor’s 50 by 30 and begin actually achieving it.”
U.S. Green Building Council-Long Island Chapter
“The Clean Energy Link is an important step forward for Long Island. It ensures a more sustainable energy future, and its innovative net-zero converter station is a great example of the type of responsible development that Long Island needs.”
New York State Assembly
“Long Island is determined to protect our environment, and Governor Cuomo’s 50 by 30 mandate is the vehicle that ensures innovative methods for securing renewable energy is a part of the equation. Long Islanders have long sought clean energy via wind and solar projects, but the proposal by Invenergy allows us to make a significant step forward without sacrificing open space as a consequence.”
Nassau-Suffolk Building and Construction Trades Council
“Building the Clean Energy Link is the most affordable way to quickly bring new renewable energy to Long Island. The Clean Energy Link will put Long Islanders to work to provide the region with affordable and reliable clean energy.”
Frank P. Petrone
“The Clean Energy Link project is an exciting opportunity to help address Long Island’s future energy needs and fulfill Governor Cuomo’s ambitious mandate of having 50 percent of the state’s energy come from renewable sources by the year 2030. Long Island ratepayers, and our environment, should benefit from this project becoming part of the area’s energy mix.”
Molloy College Sustainability Institute
“Clean energy is our future, and the Clean Energy Link is certainly something to move forward on. If Long Island is going to meet the Governors 50 by 30 mandate, massive amounts of renewable energy are needed. In addition to roof-top solar and on-island solar farms, projects like the Clean Energy Link and off-shore wind must move forward. We must seriously consider all renewable options if we are going to have a clean energy future."

New York State Assembly
“The scale of these projects show what the private sector can do when given the right incentives. An approach that provides affordable renewable energy for families and business, and keeps Long Island competitive, is a win-win."
New York State Assembly
“The Clean Energy Link demonstrates what the private sector can do, in conjunction with government efforts, to deliver affordable, reliable and clean energy for Long Island. It’s a win for my constituents and residents all throughout Long Island.”
Long Island Director
New York Communities for Change
“The Clean Energy Link offers access to renewable energy at a more affordable price to ratepayers than any other project can offer. Steps like these help offset the dangerous effects of climate change by reducing our dependence on fossil fuels.”
Town of Babylon
“Increasing investments in renewables to fight climate change is a commitment we take seriously in Suffolk County. We look forward to working with Invenergy on this project to make Governor Cuomo’s 50 by 30 vision a reality.”
“It’s encouraging to see examples where government and the private sector can come together to meet the demanding challenges our community faces. Providing the technology and access to clean, renewable energy at scale is milestone for Nassau County."
Long Island Progressive Coalition
“All across Long Island there are people calling out for more renewable energy. It is important that we evaluate and build all feasible renewable projects to achieve the Governor’s 50% renewable energy mandate.”
