ALL INVITED TO FORUM ON DEEPWATER WIND’S SOUTH FORK WIND FARM

Monday, April 17, 7-9 p.m.

Southampton’s Rogers Memorial Library 

The Natural Resources Committee of the League of Women Voters of the Hamptons invites the public to learn all about Deepwater Wind’s planned South Fork wind farm at a program titled “Wind, a Clean Energy Solution” on Monday, April 17, 7-9 p.m. at Southampton’s Rogers Memorial Library, 91 Coopers Farm Road.

The distinguished panel of experts includes Doreen Harris, Program Manager for Large Scale Renewables at the NYS Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA); Michael Voltz, P.E., Director of Energy Efficiency & Renewables at PSEG Long Island; and Clint Plummer, Vice President of Development at Deepwater Wind.

They will discuss Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Master Energy Plan and vision for off-shore wind projects; Long Island’s energy needs and how they can be met with renewable energy; and details, including installation, operation and costs, of Deepwater Wind’s planned wind farm in the Atlantic Ocean, 30 miles southeast of Montauk. The 12-15 turbines in federally-leased waters are expected to provide 90 megawatts of electricity to power more than 50,000 residences on the South Fork.

Refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m. before the start of the meeting.

Southampton Town’s SEA-TV will be on hand to tape and air the program for later viewing on Channel 22.

Reservations are recommended, by calling LWV Natural Resources Committee Chair Susan Wilson at 631.283.6549.
