WIND AUCTION WILL PROCEED - The Associated Press: "The federal government's plan to auction the development rights to a huge offshore wind farm in the Atlantic Ocean between New York and New Jersey will proceed Thursday. Groups representing the fishing industry in four states sought to delay the auction. But an agreement between the groups and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management will allow it to proceed. A lawyer for the fishing groups says they still will be able to seek a halt to the final sale during a federal court proceeding now scheduled for Feb. 8, 2017." http://nwsdy.li/2hmNqLZ
OFFSHORE WIND FARM OPENS - The Associated Press' Jennifer McDermott: "The nation's first offshore wind farm has opened off the coast of Rhode Island, ushering in a new era in the U.S. for the industry.

** A message from Clean Energy Link - Powered by Invenergy: The largest renewable energy project ever proposed on Long Island, the Clean Energy Link is the quickest, most affordable path towards Governor Cuomo's 50 by 30 mandate.

Using sites totaling more than 55,000 acres spread across a geographically diverse area, the Clean Energy Link captures great economies of scale, brings Long Island a more consistent supply of green power than is currently available, and offers significant ratepayer value by delivering renewable energy at attractive prices. Operational by 2020, the Clean Energy Link is a win-win for Long Island: tripling renewables and preserving open space. LEARN MORE **https://www.politicopro.com/settings
