Environmental Mitigation Plans
In October 2019, NYSERDA finalized contracts to purchase power from the Empire Wind project (Equinor Wind US LLC) and Sunrise Wind project (a joint venture of Ørsted A/S and Eversource Energy) as part of the New York Phase 1 offshore wind procurement. The contracts include environmental mitigation plans as well as commitments from both developers to further refine these plans through consultation with the E-TWG. Updated versions of environmental mitigation plans will be posted as they become available.
