WINDS OF CHANGE: AN EVENING WITH ABIGAIL HOPPER, BOEM DIRECTOR
Tuesday September 27, 2016 7pm
With Sane Energy Project and Win Wind Coalition
Long Island Association
300 Broad Hollow Rd, Melville, NY 11747
Right now, we are on the verge of a sea change in our energy system – for the first time, the United States is moving toward utility-scale offshore wind power. New York State is poised to be at the forefront of that change, with offshore wind lease areas in motion along both the east end and the south shore of Long Island. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) is the agency that is spurring and facilitating this movement, and we are honored to have BOEM Director Abigail Hopper come and participate in a presentation and a lively discussion about what the transition to offshore wind power means for our energy future. Director Hopper will be joined by representatives of business, labor, environmental advocacy and resiliency groups, and we will discuss how offshore wind power will impact each of these areas. We hope you will join us, get your questions answered, and be a part of energy history in the making!
