ACP Statement on Major Milestone for Empire Wind

The American Clean Power Association (ACP) released the following statement from Anne Reynolds, ACP Vice President for Offshore Wind, after the Department of the Interior approved the Construction and Operations Plan for Equinor’s Empire Wind project in New York:

“This is a milestone for Empire Wind and domestic offshore wind as a whole. When it reaches construction, this project will, over two phases, create thousands of family-sustaining jobs and revitalize the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal. This will be a great development for the New York regional economy and we look forward to the success of this project. We will continue to work closely with the Administration toward a secure, clean energy future.”
