The Bureau of Ocean Energy and Management (BOEM) has announced the availability of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the proposed Revolution Wind energy project offshore Rhode Island. The project is a development of Ørsted and Eversource.
The Notice of Availability for the Revolution Wind environmental analysis will publish in the Federal Register on Sept. 2, opening a 45-day public comment period that ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on Oct. 17. The input received via this process will inform preparation of the Final EIS.
Revolution Wind submitted a Construction and Operation Plan (COP) for its proposed wind farm of up to 100 wind turbines located approximately 15 nautical miles southeast of Point Judith, Rhode Island. The expected megawatt (MW) capacity range for this project is 704 to 880 MW. The DEIS analyses the potential environmental impacts of the project as described in the COP and several alternatives to the proposed action. BOEM will use the findings of the EIS to inform its decision on whether to approve Revolution Wind’s COP, and if so, what mitigation measures to require.
