The purpose of the South Fork Wind Farm (the Project) is to generate electricity from an offshore wind farm and transmit it to the existing East Hampton Substation, part of the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) electric transmission and distribution system in East Hampton, New York. The Project addresses the need identified by LIPA for new sources of power generation that can cost-effectively and reliably supply the South Fork of Suffolk County, Long Island, as an alternative to constructing new transmission facilities. The Project will also help LIPA achieve its renewable energy goals. The Project will enable Deepwater South Fork to fulfill its contractual commitments to LIPA pursuant to a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) executed in 2017 resulting from LIPA's technology-neutral competitive bidding process.
The South Fork Wind Farm is located in federal waters on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS), specifically in Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) Renewable Energy Lease Area OCS-A 0517, approximately 19 miles southeast of Block Island, Rhode Island, and approximately 35 miles east of Montauk Point, New York; The South Fork Export Cable is located on the OCS, in New York State Territorial Waters, and in the Town of East Hampton, New York.
The Executive Director granted a BOEM request to extend the final completion date for “Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Air Permit,” “Issuance of final decision for permit/approval” until 01/18/2022. The Executive Director determination is available here.
