U.S. Wants Offshore Wind Farms Off Coasts, in Gulf of Mexico by 2030

The Biden administration announced plans to develop seven major offshore wind farms on the East and West coasts and in the Gulf of Mexico by 2030.

President Joe Biden aims to have the wind farms deploy 30 gigawatts of offshore wind energy by 2030 as part of an energy plan. The farms would generate enough electricity to power more than 10 million homes.

The Energy Department said in a related announcement it is spending $11.5 million to study the risks that offshore wind farms may pose to birds, bats and marine mammals. It will also survey changes in commercial fish and marine invertebrate populations on the East Coast.
