Massachusetts Could Produce the Most Offshore Wind Energy
According to a report, Massachusetts’ offshore wind potential is equivalent to more than 19 times the state’s annual electricity consumption. Even if all the heating and transportation energy uses were converted to electric power, offshore wind could still produce eight times as much energy. There are now 13 leased offshore wind projects moving forward in the U.S., which could provide enough energy to power 5.2 million homes.
