Description:

Sunrise Wind LLC (Sunrise Wind) proposes to construct, operate and maintain an offshore wind farm to be located approximately 18.5 statute miles (mi) (16.1 nautical miles [nm], 29.8 kilometers [km]) south of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, and approximately 30 mi (26.1 nm, 48.2 km) east of Montauk, New York (NY). The majority of the Project would be located in federal waters in the designated Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) Renewable Energy Lease Area OCS-A 0487 (Lease Area), which is located in OCS blocks that were previously designated as Lease OCS-A 0487 in the Rhode Island/Massachusetts Wind Energy Area (RI-MA WEA) and Lease OCS-A 0500 in the Massachusetts Wind Energy Area (MA WEA). The Lease Area is approximately 30 statute miles (mi) east off the coast of Montauk, New York. Other components of the Project would be located in state waters of New York and onshore in Brookhaven, Long Island, New York. The proposed interconnection location for the Project is either the existing Holbrook Substation or the Holbrook and West Bus Substations, which are owned and operated by the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA).
