The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) has committed to purchasing power generated by an offshore wind farm built by the Rhode Island firm Deepwater Wind. The Wind Farm is expected to provide 90 megawatts of electricity to the South Fork, where demand is projected to increase sharply. The facility is scheduled for completion in December 2022. Cable connecting off shore wind generators to LIPAs electric grid will be buried under Gardiners Bay in East Hampton. Long time proponents of off shore wind farms are enthusiastic but local fishermen are concerned over the impact on sea life and their operations.
