The study determined that the total economic impact of the phased project would be approximately:
- 350 MW Project: $1 billion in sales, 8,700 job-years and $610 million in wages (in present-year dollars).
- 700 MW Project: $3 billion in sales, 17,000 job-years and $1 billion in wages. A preliminary evaluation of port facilities found that the Howland Hook Marine Terminal, located on Staten Island, is expected to be the most viable New York State option to host the project's construction-related onshore activities.
