Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: Upon consideration and robust analysis of data from extensive stakeholder engagement and more than 20 studies on environmental, social, economic, regulatory, and infrastructure issues, New York State has identified the Area for Consideration as the most desirable area for future offshore wind development. The Area for Consideration presents the fewest conflicts with ocean users, natural resources, infrastructure, and wildlife, and has the greatest potential for the cost-effective development of offshore wind energy to meet the State’s goals.Four Indicative WEAs in four example configurations within the Area for Consideration, each capable of supporting at least 800 MW of future offshore wind development, are also provided. The Indicative WEAs are provided for illustrative purposes and may be shifted, reshaped, or both within the Area for Consideration. No individual indicative WEA configuration represents a “best-case” scenario or priority preference.No State or Federal agency or entity has committed to any specific course of action with respect to the development of such future wind projects. Neither this Area for Consideration, nor the studies associated with it commits any governmental entity to any specific course of action. In the event BOEM identifies a new WEA and awards a lease in the future, any offshore wind project in that new WEA will be required to meet all State and Federal permit, license and other approvals prior to proceeding with the development of the project.For more information see:
