The Answer Is Blowing In The Wind

Feds To Hold Public Scoping Hearings On Offshore Wind Farms

The Long Island Offshore Wind Park is a proposal to construct 40 wind turbines that will be located 3.6 to 5.5 miles off the south shore of Long Island. The slow-spinning turbines would generate 140 megawatts of pollution-free, safe, renewable power. This is enough to provide electricity for 44,000 homes on Long Island!

The federal agency, Minerals Management Service (MMS), will be holding Public Scoping Hearings on the Wind Park July 10th and 11th.
