Interior Secretary Announces Wind Leasing Goals

She hopes for up to seven offshore sales for wind projects by 2025.

On Wednesday, the Department of the Interior announced goals for wind leasing. Secretary Deb Haaland stated that the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management could hold up to seven offshore lease sales by 2025. The areas include the Gulf of Maine, New York Bight, Central Atlantic, and the Gulf of Mexico, as well as offshore the Carolinas, California, and Oregon.

“The Interior Department is laying out an ambitious roadmap as we advance the Administration’s plans to confront climate change, create good-paying jobs, and accelerate the nation’s transition to a cleaner energy future,” said Secretary Haaland. “This timetable provides two crucial ingredients for success: increased certainty and transparency. Together, we will meet our clean energy goals while addressing the needs of other ocean users and potentially impacted communities. We have big goals to achieve a clean energy economy and Interior is meeting the moment.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration as they work on renewable energy projects.
  • For Secretary Haaland as she promotes the offshore wind energy projects.
  • For the efficient and effective investment of taxpayer funds into alternative energy sources.
