New York expects to meet its 2.4GW offshore wind target for 2030 with around three to six projects of 400-800MW each, with the expectation that the turbines will be 8-10MW in size, according to a state official.

Beyond Deepwater Wind’s already-contracted 90MW South Fork project off eastern Long Island, which is due for completion in 2022, the state does not anticipate additional projects being on line until the mid-2020s, says Greg Matzat, who leads offshore wind activities at the New York State Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
