Offshore wind power


We are building the next great American industry with offshore wind projects that will:

  • Help the U.S. meet its growing energy demands
  • Create well-paying, accessible jobs
  • Grow local and regional economies
  • Support new manufacturing and infrastructure

Our growing portfolio of offshore wind farms will produce enough clean energy to power over 2 million American homes.
