Details:

Join a public information session focused on a proposal to develop an offshore wind energy project offshore of Maryland with power lines from the project proposed to come ashore at 3Rs Beach in Delaware Seashore State Park.

US Wind, Inc., proposes to develop a commercial-scale, offshore wind energy project in the Lease Area known as Lease OCS–A 0490 offshore of Maryland. The proposed project is comprised of up to 121 wind turbine generators, up to four offshore substations, up to four offshore/onshore export cables, and one meteorological tower, in a gridded array pattern distributed across the Lease Area.

Building the offshore wind turbines for the project will require a federal permitting process (separate from any state process). Bringing the power lines ashore in Delaware will require permits and authorizations from the state of Delaware — from the DNREC Divisions of Water and Watershed Stewardship.

The Public Information Session will help members of the public learn more about this proposed project prior to a July 9, 2024, Public Hearing.

The Information Session is the Department’s platform which provides the public the opportunity to review the applications and other related documents, as well as ask questions about the proposed project. The event will also include presentation boards from the Applicant, as well as from DNREC staff and various Federal partners.

NOTE: Questions and comments received at the Public Information Session are not part of the Hearing Record generated in this matter.

Learn more about the proposed project, and review application materials, at dnrec.delaware.gov/us-wind/.
