New York bets on offshore wind power, and not because it’s cheaper

Under a new president who has promoted fossil fuel energy, you might think renewable energy is doomed for four years or more. Think again, says the state of New York. A power company serving Long Island just signed a contract to buy gobs of offshore wind power from turbines that will spin just off the eastern tip of the island.

This deal comes even though offshore wind energy is relatively expensive, and even though there could be federal road blocks — or perhaps we should say wind blocks — ahead.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
