SouthCoast Wind

SouthCoast Wind, a joint venture of Shell New Energies and Ocean Winds North America, is developing an offshore wind lease area—located over 30 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard —that has the potential to generate 2,400 megawatts of low-cost clean energy, enough to power more than one million homes across New England. SouthCoast Wind is expected to create more than 14,000 direct jobs over the project’s lifetime, and will represent 8% of the Nation’s goal for offshore wind energy by 2030. 
SouthCoast Wind is committed to developing an offshore wind industry framework in Southern New England and intends to procure substantial goods and services from local businesses.
