EXCELSIOR WIND

Delivering Clean Energy, Economic Benefits, and Jobs to the Empire State

As selected for New York's next round of offshore wind development, Vineyard Offshore's Excelsior Wind project will deliver more than 1,300 MW of clean, reliable electrical capacity to New York, enough to power 700,000 homes and avoid 1.1 million tons of carbon pollution annually, equivalent to taking nearly 225,000 cars off the road. Excelsior Wind will provide millions of dollars' worth of economic benefits in jobs, workforce development, opportunities for local businesses, and other initiatives, with a focus on disadvantaged communities, while ensuring New York's place as a national hub of the offshore wind industry.

LOCAL SUPPLY CHAIN

SUPPORT FOR COMMUNITIES

A JUST TRANSITION

Excelsior Wind will contribute to a just clean energy transition centered on racial equity and environmental justice.

Community

Consistent with Vineyard Offshore's community-led approach to offshore wind development, Excelsior Wind will proceed with clear and open communication and a commitment to building collaborative relationships. With grid interconnection at East Garden City in Uniondale, Excelsior Wind will focus community engagement on southern Nassau County, with emphasis on benefits for disadvantaged communities.
