New Jersey Company Seeks Offshore Wind Lease Off the Coast of Charleston

Fisherman’s Energy is one of two companies looking at leases 10 miles off the coast of Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge and two smaller stretches 20 miles off the coast of Charleston Harbor. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management is pursuing opening the leasing process for these areas. The waters off the coast of South Carolina have long since been considered as ideal locations for offshore wind.
