NEW YORK — Attentive Energy One has been selected by New York Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) in the state's third offshore wind solicitation to negotiate an offtake agreement with NYSERDA.
This 1,400-MW offshore wind project will support the nation's first renewable repowering of a major fossil fuel generator, retiring and replacing a 60-year-old unit at Ravenswood Generating Station in Long Island City. Once operational, the project is expected to power more than 700,000 New York homes from an area more than 50 miles from the nearest point onshore in New York.
In addition to reducing carbon emissions by more than 1 million tons per year, Attentive Energy One is expected to deliver $25.6 billion in direct and indirect economic benefits to New York State, including more than 2,600 new jobs.
Attentive Energy One is a joint venture (JV) between TotalEnergies, Rise Light & Power, and Corio Generation. The JV describes Attentive Energy One as an offshore wind project designed to help New York achieve the goals of replacing fossil fuel with renewable energy and establishing a durable local industry with living-wage jobs.
