Description:

The purpose of the Mayflower Wind Project is to provide clean, renewable wind energy to the Northeast United States, including to Massachusetts. Mayflower Wind will support reliability in Massachusetts and in the New England region, while meeting the Commonwealth’s statutory need for renewable/clean energy. The Mayflower Wind Project also supports the federal need of grid reliability, as set forth the Federal Power Act in Section 215. Out of the 6.7 million people living in Massachusetts, nearly 5.1 million people live along coastal areas of the state. Offshore wind projects like Mayflower Wind can provide a localized energy source to coastal populations.

The Environmental Review and Permitting Status of this project will be changed to "In Progress" once the Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) has been issued.
