White House unveils plans for wind farm in the Pacific Ocean off California's coast

The Biden Administration said Tuesday that it will develop offshore wind projects in the Pacific Ocean in partnership with the state of California.

The move, which is the first of its kind, is a key stepping stone toward the White House’s goal of deploying 30 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030.

The earmarked area encompasses around 399 square miles off California’s central coast. This area is projected to support 3 GW of offshore wind. Another potential location is off the northern coast of California. In total, the administration is targeting 4.6 GW of clean energy added to the grid through these projects, which is enough to power about 1.6 million homes.

The announcement follows years of discussion between the Departments of the Interior and Defense as a viable location was scouted.

“Developing offshore wind to produce clean, renewable energy could be a game changer to achieving California’s clean energy goals and addressing climate change – all while bolstering the economy and creating new jobs,” Governor Gavin Newsom said in a statement.
