New York's Long Island will draw on wind, natural gas, submarine cable and energy conservation to increase its electric supply 1,250 MW over the next decade under a new comprehensive energy plan. The program for the first time will link the transmission-constrained island directly to the generation-rich Northeast power market via the PJM Interconnection LLC. It also will construct what could be the first commercial-scale offshore windfarm in the U.S., as well as the first combined-cycle generation plants on Long Island. The projects include a 140-MW offshore wind park, two 79.9-MW and one 326-MW gas-fired powerplants, a submarine cable from New Jersey and up to 75 MW of energy and capacity savings from energy-efficiency retrofits.
