Well connected NY energy czar to recuse himself from LI wind farm meetings

New York’s chairman of energy and financeNew York’s chairman of energy and finance will exclude himself from meetings with the world’s largest offshore wind-energy developer about a wind farm off Long Island because of an investment he has in a Goldman Sachs subsidiary that owns a large stake in the company.
