Revolution Wind LLC proposes the Revolution Wind Farm Project, an offshore wind farm to be located approximately 12 statute miles south of the coast of Rhode Island in federal waters in the area designated by the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) as Renewable Energy Lease Number OCS-A 0486 (the Project).
The purpose of the Project is to provide clean, reliable offshore wind energy that will increase the amount and availability of renewable energy to New England consumers while creating the opportunity to displace electricity generated by fossil fuel-powered plants and offering substantial economic and environmental benefits to the New England region. Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York have adopted substantial renewable portfolio standards and clean energy targets to address issues associated with climate change, highlighting the current and future demand for this Project.
The Project has been awarded three Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) totaling 704 MW of generation capacity: 1) a 200 MW contract with the State of Connecticut approved in December 2018; 2) a 400 MW contract with the State of Rhode Island approved in February 2019; and 3) a 104 MW contract with the State of Connecticut approved in November 2019. The Project is being developed to fulfill its obligations to Connecticut and Rhode Island in accordance with the PPAs. The Project maximum generating capacity is 880 MW.
