The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has announced the availability of two draft Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) for offshore wind projects for public review and comment. If approved, the Coastal Virginia Wind (CVOW) project and the Sunrise Wind project could provide over 4,000 megawatts (MW) of offshore wind energy capacity, enough to power over 1.3 million homes.
The proposed CVOW commercial project offshore Virginia Beach could provide up to 3,000 MW of energy, enough to power at least 1 million homes. The proposed Sunrise Wind project offshore New York, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island could provide up to 1,034 MW of energy, enough to power at least 350,000 homes. The draft EISs can be found on BOEM’s website, and the Notice of Availability for the draft EISs will be published in the Federal Register on Dec. 16, which will open a 60-day public comment period that ends on Feb. 14, 2023. The input received via this process will inform the preparation of the final EISs.
