The process to start Off Shore Wind for Long Island moves forward. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) announced the proposed lease sale for 81,130 acres offshore New York for commercial wind energy leasing. The area is approximately 11 miles south of Long Beach, an area that can support a large-scale commercial wind project.
