Governor Kathy Hochul has announced that the New York State Public Service Commission has granted Empire Offshore Wind its final approval, authorising the project to begin construction on the 810 MW offshore wind farm.

The Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) issued authorises the construction and operation of transmission facilities for the delivery of electricity into New York from the 810 MW offshore wind farm.

The approved transmission facilities that will be located within New York’s jurisdiction include:

  1. Two 230 kilovolt (kV) alternating current submarine transmission cables extending from the boundary of New York State waters (three nautical miles from shore) to the cable landfall in Brooklyn.
  2. A 0.2 mile-long onshore cable route, including two 230 kV alternating current transmission cables buried underground, connecting to an onshore substation.
  3. An onshore substation located at the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal that will increase the voltage to 345 kV.
  4. Two 345 kV alternating current onshore transmission cables buried underground from the onshore substation to a Point of Interconnection with Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc.’s existing Gowanus 345 kV substation in Brooklyn.
