“BOEM’s completion of the final environmental review of the Vineyard Wind project marks an historic milestone in the development of the offshore wind industry in America.

To be launched from the Port of New Bedford, the project will be America’s first industrial-scale offshore wind farm, and will usher in an era of similar clean energy projects down the East Coast. With its advantages of geographic proximity, upgraded infrastructure and America’s best seafaring workforce, and after years of careful planning and investment,

New Bedford is poised to lead the development of the industry, so that it can meet its promise of generating well-paying jobs while successfully coexisting with the commercial fishing industry. I am grateful to the Biden Administration for its determination to accelerate the country’s march toward a more sustainable future, and to create clean energy job opportunities for American families.”—Mayor Jon Mitchell
