Deepwater wind farm proposal draws supporters, critics in East Hampton

East Hampton residents and stakeholders attended a Wainscott hearing Thursday, May 17, 2018, to voice support and opposition for a developer's plan to build the state’s first offshore wind farm 30 miles east of Montauk. As part of the project, Deepwater Wind is seeking an easement to route a power cable through a Wainscott beach and under town roads to a substation in East Hampton. (Credit: Newsday / Vera Chinese)
