The US government is set to begin its environmental review of up-to-2GW of offshore wind power capacity being developed by Baltimore-based US Wind off the coast of Maryland that includes two separate projects with contracted offtake exceeding 1GW.

“President Biden has set the bar high for a clean energy future with ambitious offshore wind goals that will lower costs for families, create nearly 80,000 good-paying jobs and make substantive progress as we work to confront the climate crisis,” said Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland.
