Interior Advances Offshore Atlantic Transmission Line

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on May 14, 2012

‘No Competitive Interest’ finding clears way for environmental analysis of proposed transmission ‘backbone’ for Outer Continental Shelf wind farms: “The proposed project is a high-voltage, direct-current subsea transmission system that would collect power generated by wind turbine facilities off the Atlantic coasts of New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. The first such offshore infrastructure proposed in the United States, the system’s parallel, redundant circuits would total about 790 miles in length. Major investors in the Atlantic Wind Connection proposal include Google, Inc.; Good Energies II, LP; Marubeni Corporation and Elia.”
