Hawaii Considering a Proposal for Offshore Wind

Hawaii is considering a $1.6 billion plan by Denmark’s Alpha Wind Energy for 100 turbines totaling 408 megawatts in federal waters offshore of Oahu. The floating turbines would be placed off the northwest and southern coasts making it the U.S.’s first floating offshore wind farm. Hawaii recently hosted a meeting with all interested stakeholders in order to identify concerns and hear suggestions prior to considering the proposal.
