Official unveils plan to turn New York City into wind energy manufacturing hub

Mayoral candidate Eric Adams unveiled an ambitious new plan that aims to build wind turbines and their manufacturing plants at ports throughout New York City.

“New York City has always been a hub for innovation, new ideas, and progressive thinking. There is no reason New York City shouldn’t be a leader in wind power. We have the resources and we can foster the talent — we just have not had the leadership to get it done,” Adams said, according to the New York Post.

The current Brooklyn borough president revealed his plan on Wednesday, stating waterfront factories would design, produce and ship the materials needed to build the wind farms, helping create eco-friendly jobs for residents in the process.
