Description:

The purpose of the Kitty Hawk project is to develop a commercial-scale, offshore wind energy facility in Commercial Lease OCS-A 0508 offshore North Carolina, with up to 69 total wind turbine generators, 1 offshore substation (also called “electrical service platform”), inter-array cables, 1 onshore substation, and up to 2 transmission cables making landfall in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and connecting to the Pennsylvania-New Jersey-Maryland (PJM) Interconnection energy grid. Kitty Hawk is actively seeking one or more power purchase agreement awards for this project. The project is intended to substantially contribute to the region’s electrical reliability and help Virginia achieve its renewable energy goals as stated in the Virginia Clean Economy Act.

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.
