Update: In October 2021, the project name changed from Vineyard Wind South to New England Wind to reflect restructuring of the project’s parent companies (for more information, see Vineyard Wind’s September 21, 2021 press release).
New England Wind is the proposal to develop offshore renewable wind energy facilities in BOEM Lease Area OCS-A 0534 along with associated offshore and onshore cabling, onshore substations, and onshore operations and maintenance (O&M) facilities. Park City Wind LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Avangrid Renewables, LLC, is the Proponent and would be responsible for the construction, operation, and decommissioning of New England Wind. New England Wind will be developed in two Phases. If approved, Phase 1, also known as the Park City Wind project, will be developed in the northeastern portion of Lease Area OCS-A 0534. Phase 2, also known as Commonwealth Wind, will be located southwest of Phase 1.
FAST-41 provides increased transparency and predictability by requiring Federal agencies to publish comprehensive permitting timetables for all "covered" projects, and provides clear procedures for modifying permitting timetables to address the unpredictability inherent in the environmental review and permitting process for significant infrastructure projects. For more information, see "The FAST-41 Process" at https://www.permits.performance.gov/fpisc-content/fast-41-process.
The Executive Director granted a Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) request to extend the NEPA, COP, Section 106, Sections 10/404, and OCS air permit actions completion date on May 10, 2023. The Executive Director determination is posted here.
