Energizing New York's future with Sunrise Wind

Sunrise Wind is the future of American clean energy, and that future is being built by New Yorkers, for New Yorkers.

With enough offshore wind energy to power nearly 600,000 homes, we’re providing 100% renewable energy; creating hundreds of fulfilling, long-term jobs; and building an inclusive and statewide clean energy economy that will energize our state for decades to come.

Sunrise Wind builds on the foundations we laid with New York’s first offshore wind farm, South Fork Wind, to transform New York’s electric grid and accelerate our clean energy future.
