Offshore Wind


SPR represented NYSERDA on several matters relating to the State’s development of offshore wind energy.  The Firm helped NYSERDA prepare the New York State Offshore Wind Master Plan and its twenty supporting studies, and advised on the preparation of the Generic Environmental Impact Statement for the Public Service Commission’s plan to procure offshore wind renewable energy credits.  These efforts helped to establish the groundwork required for the State to meet its current goal of fostering the development of 9,000 megawatts of offshore wind energy by 2035.
