JUST ANNOUNCED | We have proposed two Draft Wind Energy Areas off the Oregon coast. These WEAs could facilitate the delivery of clean wind power in the region.
These two draft WEAs represent an 81% reduction of acres of the Oregon Call Area that was announced for public comment in April 2022. These draft WEAs include approximately:
🌊 219,568 acres
⚡+2.6GW offshore wind capacity
🏠 +932,000 homes powered with clean energy
We are seeking public comments on the two draft Wind Energy Areas: one off the coast of Coos Bay, Oregon and the other off the coast of Brookings, Oregon. Our goal is to identify locations most suitable for wind energy development while considering the coexistence with ocean users.
During the 60-day public comment period, we will hold meeting to outline data and information used to inform the draft WEAs and to discuss next steps. The meeting will be open to the public, with one designated specifically for the fishing community.
