Below is a press release written by Sierra Club's national communications team
Gov. Malloy and DEEP Commissioner Klee announced a slate of new renewable energy programs on June 13 including 200 megawatts of offshore wind at the Revolution Wind site. The project will be built by Deepwater Wind and comes just three weeks after Massachusetts and Rhode Island signaled their support for new offshore wind projects. It’s starting to look like we have a trend of offshore wind projects in the Northeast, placing the region and CT, MA and RI specifically, in the role of national leaders on offshore wind.
