Not in the Hudson River! New York State has recommended an identified Area for Consideration to the federal government’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, which determines the final locations of wind energy areas in the New York Bight.
Port Cortlandt would be fewer than 225 nautical miles from the Atlantic Shores Wind, Empire Wind, Liberty Wind, Ocean Wind, Sunrise Wind, and other offshore wind projects currently in development along the East Coast — an advantageous position for the supply chain. Port Cortlandt also enjoys easy access to other staging ports in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
Is this a Town of Cortlandt project?
The Town of Cortlandt is not formally involved in the project. The Town Board conceptually supported the Request for Qualifications response and has been and will continue to be consulted by Port Cortlandt Development, LLC, throughout the process.
Why was this proposal initiated?
We believe in the merits of Port Cortlandt and the creation of green jobs, generation of renewable energy, and the vital economic relief the project could bring to local communities and greater region during and after the Indian Point Energy Center’s decommissioning.
Our team is working with local landowners and stakeholders — in addition to the offshore wind supply chain industry — to explore common interests in attracting offshore wind manufacturing to the Cortlandt community.
