A new farm is opening up 30 miles off the coast of Montauk — 600 feet in the air — after the Long Island Power Authority approved a contract with contractor Deepwater Wind last month. The proposed, 12-15 turbine farm is estimated at $740 million and could provide more than $1 billion worth of power over a 20 year period. The project is just the second offshore wind farm in the U.S., after the farm off Block Island opened last year. The proposed plan requires a 50-mile cable beneath the water before the farm can power upwards of 50,000 homes on the mainland. Deepwater plans to discuss the project in upcoming public meetings.
