Massachusetts, Rhode Island move closer to new wind energy
BOSTON (AP) — The federal government has completed an environmental assessment that will guide construction of wind projects in a swath of federal waters off the coasts of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, with the hope of offering leases to developers by the end of next year.
The study is intended to simplify the leasing process for the Rhode Island/Massachusetts Wind Energy Area, which comprises more than 164,000 acres in an area roughly 11 miles south of Martha's Vineyard and 13 miles east of Block Island. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management has designated the area an ideal place for power generation.
