Biden administration gives major push to giant offshore wind farm

“The Interior Department said on Monday it had completed its environmental review for a massive wind farm off the coast of Massachusetts, a key step toward final approval of the long-stalled project that will play a prominent role in President Joe Biden’s effort to expand renewable energy in the U.S.

The completion of the review is a breakthrough for the U.S. offshore wind industry, which has lagged behind its European counterparts and the U.S. onshore industry that has grown rapidly, even duringthe pandemic. It also marks a key acceleration for the Biden administration that has advocated renewables growth on public lands and waters.”

“The project had suffered repeated delays under the Trump administration.”
