Mar 26 2024

WASHINGTON, D.C., March 26, 2024 — The 91ȫ Association (ACP) released the following statement from Anne Reynolds, ACP Vice President for Offshore Wind, after the Department of the Interior issued the Record of Decision approving the Sunrise Wind offshore wind project operated by Orsted and Eversource:

“It is a great day for the Sunrise Wind project. The Record of Decision approved by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and Orsted’s Final Investment Decision for Sunrise Wind marks a significant step forward for U.S. offshore wind deployment. Once fully constructed, Sunrise Wind’s 924 megawatts will have the capacity to power nearly 600,000 homes in New York, revitalize ports, create jobs, and stimulate economic growth throughout the region. We applaud the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and other federal agencies who thoroughly reviewed the Construction and Operations Plan. BOEM’s approval of offshore wind projects is crucial for delivering more clean, renewable energy and is a critical step toward New York reaching a carbon-free electrical grid by 2040.”
