By 2030, seven offshore wind developments set to generate power for four million homes will require transmission pathways through 15 communities across the region including Brookhaven, Long Island, Sunset Park, Brooklyn and Ocean City, NJ. This panel will bring together community leaders, environmental advocates, energy developers, and government officials for a discussion about what offshore wind transmission is and what effective community engagement looks like as New York, New Jersey and states across the country prepare to scale a new industry that has the potential to deliver thousands of local jobs and economic growth. Panelists will discuss the lived experience of transmission development that many other communities are about to live through, bringing to life a recent case study in South Fork Wind on Long Island, an offshore wind farm that will power 70,000 Long Island homes.
