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 over 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 one million tons per year – equivalent to removing 13% of cars from New York City streets – Attentive Energy One is expected to deliver USD 25.6 billion in direct and indirect economic benefits to New York State, including more than 2,600 new unique jobs.
The project is also expected to save ratepayers approximately USD 10 billion on their utility bills over the first 25 years of operation, including USD 500 million in savings for low-income New Yorkers.
Doreen Harris, President and CEO, NYSERDA said: "New York State's largest-ever renewable energy awards' announcement demonstrates our unwavering commitment to achieving an equitable and vibrant clean energy future. We look forward to working with the Attentive Energy One team to bring the project online to reduce emissions and deliver zero-emission energy to hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers."
Damian Bednarz, Managing Director of Attentive Energy said: "Attentive Energy One is a community-driven project that will spur billions of dollars in economic activity, support a just transition for union workers and reduce emissions in a historically disadvantaged community. Following years of local engagement across the City and State, our team looks forward to delivering a project that reflects New York, our values and our common goals of economic development and addressing climate change. We are grateful to Governor Hochul, NYSERDA, and our community partners for their confidence and as we move this project forward, we will do everything possible to meet the mission ahead."
David Foulon, Managing Director of Offshore Wind US at TotalEnergies said: "We are deeply honored that the State of New York chose Attentive Energy One to deliver on the promise of bringing green electricity directly to the heart of New York City and entrusted us with unprecedented investments in local communities and industrial facilities to serve offshore wind from and for New York State. This is an important milestone for our offshore wind portfolio in the United States, as part of TotalEnergies Renewables U.S. growth into the fifth largest renewable energy developer in the country."
Clint Plummer, CEO of Rise Light & Power said: "This historic announcement will help make the nation's first renewable repowering a reality. We are grateful for the leadership of Governor Hochul, and NYSERDA for this historic first step toward a Renewable Ravenswood. This is the beginning of an exciting process, which will set the standard for a responsible renewable energy transition that works with communities, works with labor, and benefits all New Yorkers."
Eric Thumma, Head of US at Corio Generation said: "Corio specializes in harnessing the power of offshore wind for the benefit of communities around the world. We are honored that NYSERDA selected Attentive Energy One, our first U.S. project and a joint venture developed together with TotalEnergies and Rise & Light Power, in this round of offshore wind contracts. When we decided to enter the U.S. market, we quickly identified New York as a clean energy, economic development, and offshore wind leader. We are excited to work with our partners, NYSERDA, local stakeholders and others to build a project that creates good paying jobs, invests in domestic manufacturing, revitalizes local communities, and delivers abundant clean energy to New York's electricity consumers."
