The South Fork Offshore Wind Farm that would supply electric power to East Hampton has been approved by the Long Island Power Authority, but must meet NY State and Federal agency approval as well. It has been met by stiff opposition over the impact on the fishing industry of the windmills and the electric cable connecting them to shore. Also questions have arisen about how much power would be generated during the summer when electric usage peaks, and how the wind generated power fits into LIPA’s electric grid. We talk with regulatory consultant Thomas Bjurlof. Sustainable East End is heard monthly on the 3rd Wednesday at this time and is archived at sustainableeastend.blogspot.com
