The Natural Resources Committee of the League of Women Voters of the Hamptons invites the public to learn all about Deepwater Wind’s planned South Fork wind farm at a program titled “Wind, a Clean Energy Solution” on Monday, April 17, 7-9 p.m. at Southampton’s Rogers Memorial Library, 91 Coopers Farm Road. The distinguished panel of experts includes Doreen Harris, Program Manager for Large Scale Renewables at the NYS Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA); Michael Voltz, P.E., Director of Energy Efficiency & Renewables at PSEG Long Island; and Clint Plummer, Vice President of Development at Deepwater Wind. They will discuss Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Master Energy Plan and vision for off-shore wind projects; Long Island’s energy needs and how they can be met with renewable energy; and details, including installation, operation and costs, of Deepwater Wind’s planned wind farm in the Atlantic Ocean, 30 miles southeast of Montauk. The 12-15 turbines in federally-leased waters are expected to provide 90 megawatts of electricity to power more than 50,000 residences on the South Fork. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m. before the start of the meeting. Southampton Town’s SEA-TV will be on hand to tape and air the program for later viewing on Channel 22. Reservations are recommended, by calling LWV Natural Resources Committee Chair Susan Wilson at 631-283-6549. Information is also available from the League at 631-324-4637 or www.lwvhamptons.org.
