WinWindNY Coaltion invites you to the launch of NYSERDA’s Public Information Sessions: Long Beach, NY

Under the leadership of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, New York State has one of the most ambitious energy agendas in the nation.
As part of this agenda, New York must get 50 percent of its electricity from renewable energy sources by 2030.
In order to meet this goal, the state is advancing greater development of renewable energy resources, including offshore wind.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo proposed an unprecedented commitment in his 2017 State of the State to develop up to 2.4 gigawatts of
offshore wind by 2030 off New York’s Atlantic Coast, enough to power 1.25 million homes. Offshore wind will provide a local renewable
energy resource to a densely populated region, and will be a source of thousands of new jobs and significant investments.

The New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) is leading the development of offshore wind on behalf of the state.
Throughout 2017, NYSERDA is conducting extensive stakeholder outreach and directing over twenty studies and surveys to ensure that offshore
wind is developed responsibly. This work will culminate in the New York Offshore Wind Master Plan, to be released by the end of 2017.

As part of its public outreach, NYSERDA invites you to three public information meetings on Long Island this summer.
These meetings will provide the public with an opportunity to learn about the components of the Master Plan along with informational
exhibits, and an opportunity to ask questions about the plan. The meetings are at the following locations:
