POLITICO New York Energy: Murphy re-sparks wind deployment -- Airport possible Superfund site -- Energy research cuts

By Marie J. French and Danielle Muoio | 02/01/2018 09:58 AM EDT

MURPHY RE-SPARKS WIND DEPLOYMENT — POLITICO'S Danielle Muoio: "Gov. Phil Murphy signed an executive order Wednesday to kick-start his campaign promise to build 3,500 megawatts of offshore wind generation by 2030, an ambitious goal that would surpass targets set by New York and Massachusetts. The primary purpose of the order is to make up for lost time. It requires the Department of Environmental Protection and Board of Public Utilities to implement the Offshore Wind Economic Development Act that was signed by former Republican Gov. Chris Christie in 2010. The act had called on the BPU to develop a renewable credit program for at least 1,100 MW of offshore wind. But under Christie, the agency, which the governor controls, allowed the act to lay dormant for years, and its policies were never implemented. Until now. Murphy, a Democrat who took office this month, said the act will serve as the first step to make New Jersey a leader in offshore wind development. 'Today, New Jersey will end the nearly eight years of stalling and stonewalling,' Murphy said." Read more here.

RONKONKOMA AIRPORT POSSIBLE SUPERFUND SITE — Newsday's Emily Dooley and Valerie Bauman: "State environmental officials Tuesday listed Long Island MacArthur Airport in Ronkonkoma as a possible Superfund site over concerns that past use and storage of a firefighting foam could have contaminated drinking water supplies. Samples taken at a nearby well earlier this month detected a compound known as perfluorooctane sulfonate, or PFOS, above federal health advisory levels, officials from the state Department of Environmental Conservation said. The well in question is in Bohemia, about 7,500 feet away from the airport, and is operated as a water supply source by the Suffolk County Water Authority, which already had treatment at the site that removes the contaminant, the water authority's CEO, Jeff Szabo, said in a statement. 'Since there is an active remedial system in place, there have been no exposures,' said Martin Brand, DEC's deputy commissioner for remediation and materials management." Read more here.
