...to preserve, protect, develop, and restore coastal resources for all Rhode Islanders
Vineyard Wind has leased a 160,000 acre area south of Martha's Vineyard, and 14 miles from the nearest shore. The location was determined through a multi-year, inter-governmental task force process, which carefully considered scientific data and public input. The offshore wind project will consist of an array of wind turbines, spaced at least eight-tenths of a mile apart, that are each capable of generating over 8 MW of power. Power from the turbines is collected by an offshore substation.
