New wind projects would deliver enough power for 600k homes ksl.com m gastrocnemius medialis

Also Wednesday, Democratic Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo said that the state had selected the same Providence, Rhode Island-based Deepwater Wind project that had been proposed for Massachusetts — a 400-megawatt offshore wind farm Revolution Wind.

Massachusetts’ Republican Gov. Charlie Baker said the announcement brings the state "one step closer to achieving our administration’s goals of creating a clean, reliable and cost-effective energy future for Massachusetts residents, and significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions to combat climate change."

The announcement is the result of a 2016 bill Baker signed authorizing the largest procurement of renewable energy generation in Massachusetts’ history, including approximately 1,600 megawatts of offshore wind energy. The remaining 800 megawatts will be awarded at a separate time.

According to Vineyard Wind, the project consists of an array of wind turbines, spaced at least eight-tenths of a mile apart, that are each capable of generating over 8 MW of power. Vineyard Wind is a joint venture of Avangrid Renewables and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners.

Local construction on the Revolution Wind project could start in Rhode Island in 2020 with commercial operations by 2023 with up to 50 turbines. Deepwater Wind already owns the nation’s first offshore wind farm, a five-turbine farm off Block Island, Rhode Island.

The projects are part of a wider push for proposed offshore wind power along the East Coast, with other states — including New Jersey, Connecticut, Virginia and New York — pressing ahead with the goal of transforming the electric grid and providing energy to power millions of homes.
