The Blueprint outlines 13 actions and policy recommendations to modernize the New York power generation and transmission systems to achieve safety, reliability, affordability, and sustainability goals. Included is a recommendation to perform resource characterization studies for Atlantic offshore wind development, and an evaluation of cost recovery options, for an estimated $2-$5 million by 2014.
The application enables users to view current measured and modeled meteorological conditions along the coast and across the waters of Virginia.
