Attentive Energy One Project Update – April 19, 2024

The Attentive Energy One team acknowledges that the provisional awards from NY3 are not moving forward. We thank Governor Hochul and NYSERDA for their significant efforts and steadfast commitment to advancing New York State’s offshore wind industry and good faith negotiations.

Attentive Energy One is a highly mature project that can deliver environmental justice and billions in economic benefits to New York. Our dedication to advancing clean energy solutions and fostering sustainable communities remains unwavering as we move forward. We thank our community partners and stakeholders for their support throughout this process and ahead.

Harnessing the Wind to Repurpose 400 MW of Fossil Fuel Generation, Providing a Just Transition for Union Workers, Building World-Class Ports and Manufacturing Hubs Across the State, and Establishing New York as a Hub for the Offshore Wind Industry

We are Attentive Energy.

This is Attentive Energy One.

A Joint Venture of:

Total Energies, Rise, and Corio logos

Attentive Energy One combines the global resources and offshore expertise of TotalEnergies and Corio Generation, as well as Rise Light & Power’s proven track record of powering New York City and its deep community relationships to deliver a project for New York.

Repurposing 400 MW of Fossil Fuel Generation

Attentive Energy One will benefit historically marginalized communities by retiring 1960’s fossil generation in New York City and reusing its physical and electrical infrastructure to cost-effectively deliver offshore wind power.

Attentive Energy One will advance a community-driven initiative that is based on extensive outreach to the neighborhoods of Astoria and Long Island City and seeks to repurpose the Ravenswood Generating Station into a clean energy hub.

A Just Transition and Opportunities for Union Workers 

Attentive Energy One is making unprecedented commitments to the just transition of the union workforce, including union jobs servicing the project based at the new Ravenswood O&M Hub.

In connection with this, Attentive Energy One will fund training initiatives to ensure the workforce is prepared for the transition to renewables, as well as launch an innovative training facility for all union workers to receive
Global Wind Organization certification.

Making New York City an Offshore Wind Hub

Attentive Energy One establishes a broad-reaching community and environmental investment, commitments to local jobs, workforce and supply chain development, and a focus on disadvantaged communities.

Attentive Energy One will facilitate the construction of a new world-class port facility in New York City that will generate jobs in connection with our project for decades to come.

Attentive Energy One in Brief

A Multi-Year Effort Dedicated to Local, Meaningful Community and Stakeholder Engagement Across New York State

Strategic Location of Offshore Wind Energy Area

The Attentive Energy One lease area is not visible from the coastline, located 54 miles south of Jones Beach, New York in a central location with high wind speeds.

An Upstate-Downstate Supply Chain Strategy

The project proposes an Upstate-Downstate supply chain corridor from the Capital Region to New York City, which advances homegrown manufacturing and further localizes the supply chain. The project’s mature design and milestones position Attentive Energy One to be first out the door with manufacturing job opportunities.

A Mature, Low Risk, Lower Cost Transmission System

With over 250 miles of marine surveys conducted, Attentive Energy One has identified and de-risked a submarine route through New York Harbor that avoids landing point hurdles. By plugging directly into the waterfront at the Ravenswood Generating Station, the project can reuse the industrial infrastructure, which reduces risk and saves ratepayer dollars.

Historic Environmental Justice Action

The precedent-setting fossil repowering will retire active generation and replace it with offshore wind, providing direct benefits to neighboring disadvantaged communities and the broader
New York community.

Attentive Energy One Delivers Investments Across New York State

$25.6 billion in benefits to New York State including creating more than 2,600 new unique jobs in New York State. This translates into more than 14,000 full time equivalent job-years for New Yorkers to jumpstart the clean energy economy.

More than $10 billion in total ratepayer savings to help New Yorkers, including $500 million in rate relief for low-income New Yorkers.

Economic investments of $300 million ranging from educational initiatives and open space to workforce development and clean transportation, with significant investment in and commitments to disadvantaged communities and diverse business enterprises.

Including an unprecedented $30 million investment in regional fisheries and environmental conservation efforts, with $8 million dedicated towards marine mammal monitoring and conservation.
