Sunrise Wind Project, New York

Sunrise Wind is a proposed 880MW offshore wind farm to be developed in New York, US. Promoted by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, the project is a joint development of Danish power company Ørsted and US-based energy provider Eversource. Construction of the Sunrise project will be started in 2022 with operations scheduled to begin in May 2024. The project will generate enough electricity to power more than 500,000 homes. It will support New York State Governor’s target of producing 9,000MW of offshore wind power by 2035 as part of a Green New Deal plan and a mandate to generate 50% of the state’s electricity from renewable sources by 2030. The project will generate 800 jobs while its operation and maintenance hub will create up to 100 full-time positions. The Sunrise Wind project will be developed approximately 48km east of Montauk Point of Long Island, New York. It will be located adjacent to South Fork Wind Farm and Revolution Wind projects in federal waters off the northeastern coast of the US.
