Maryland, North Carolina, and Virginia Partnering on Offshore Wind Development
Three states plan to work together to “cooperatively promote, develop, and expand offshore wind energy and the accompanying industry supply chain and workforce,” they said in a joint press release. Maryland, North Carolina, and Virginia are working on a project that will provide up to 86,000 jobs, $57 billion in investments, and up to $25 billion in economic output in the next decade. The states will collectively form a leadership team tasked with identifying and streamlining the development of regional offshore wind resources.
