- Sign-up is urged for offshore wind farm - David Robinson/The Buffalo News
It may be at least four or five years before the New York Power Authority's proposal for a major offshore wind farm takes shape, but supporters say it's not too early for local businesses to start getting ready for the work that will come with the project.
With that in mind, the Power Authority on Wednesday outlined an initiative to help local suppliers link up with the developers now working on proposals for wind farms off the shores of Lakes Erie and Ontario that would generate 120 to 500 megawatts of electricity.
Through the Power Authority's "Get Listed" program, local companies that could supply components or offer services for the proposed wind farm can register through the NYPA Web site at www.nypa.gov and outline their capabilities and qualifications.
