U.S. wind projects

Green growth

As a global leader within green energy, we are powering our planet’s transformation towards cleaner energy. We therefore actively seek to enter new markets to help realize our vision of world that runs entirely on green energy.
In the U.S, we are developing projects in Massachusetts and New Jersey, and exploring other opportunities to bring our world-class expertise to American consumers and businesses.

Bay State Wind

Along with Eversource, we have formed a partnership to develop a large-scale offshore wind farm, known as Bay State Wind, which would be located 15 miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.

Ocean Wind

We have acquired a lease 10 miles off the New Jersey coast and are pursuing the development of a large-scale offshore wind farm, known as Ocean Wind.

Offshore wind is becoming increasingly affordable, with costs falling dramatically in recent years. We are leading efforts to bring about these cost reductions. 
We are driving industry efforts to reduce costs even further. In the U.S this will be achieved as the offshore wind industry matures and scales up, lowering cost over time.  In addition, the anticipated technology improvements, resulting in larger turbines will also have an impact, reducing costs further.

Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind

In a strategic partnership with Dominion Energy, we shall  build two 6-megawatt turbines off the coast of Virginia Beach, Virginia.  Both companies will immediately begin refining agreements for engineering, procurement and construction. Dominion remains the sole owner of the project.

See below recent research on the cost benefits of wind power:

$170 million annual savings

Massachusetts Clean Energy Partnership found that together, expanded hydro and wind power could save Massachusetts homes and businesses more than $170 million annually by lowering wholesale energy costs.

55% reduction in costs

The University of Delaware's Special Initiative on Offshore Wind, found economies of scale and technological improvements are set to drive the cost of offshore wind energy down by 55% in the next ten years or so.

Limitless & reliable

There are no ongoing fuel costs—like other technologies have. Therefore, the price of offshore wind power will not be subject to the recent spikes seen with other power sources.

Wind Power adds to New England's energy mix

It's a real environmental achievement that wind power is becoming the natural, alternative for powering our lives. As a clean, renewable and cost-effective resource, our future is likely to be healthier as a result.

The reliability of wind power continues to go from strength to strength. Our wind farms produce power over 95% of the time and have average load factors of 45% to more than 50%, helping provide electricity at peak times when it's needed most. This compares to 26% for large-scale hydro, 23% for concentrated solar power and 11% for solar photovoltaics, according to an Ernst & Young study.

With ever new technological advances and better turbines, reliability is only set to increase further.
