Empire Wind is a proposed utility-scale offshore wind farm that would be located between 15 and 30 miles off the southern coast of Long Beach and Jones Beach. It would contain up to 147 wind turbines, 2 offshore substations, and transmissions lines which are proposed to come ashore on Long Beach and traverse underground until interconnecting to Long Island’s power grid at the E. F. Barret power station in Oceanside. It is estimated that, if completed, the project would power up to 1 million New York homes. Below is information about the project that will help our residents become more informed about and involved in the project.

Please email comments, questions, or concerns to the City of Long Beach for potential inclusion in the City’s discussions with Equinor, the Public Service Commission, and other parties to wind@LongBeachNY.gov
