The turbines will catch the steady breezes 35 miles out, invisible from the beach. While good news, South Fork Wind’s 132 megawatts only put a dent in the 9 gigawatts that New York needs in total. Four major offshore wind projects, totaling slightly over 4 gigawatts of power, were thrown into limbo when the Public Service Commission denied them inflation adjustments. Those projects are going out for rebid, but it’s pretty hard to imagine they’ll come in cheaper. ... by Staff Writer
