Interior Advances Offshore Wind Projects

Seeks sustainable projects in Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean

On Thursday, the Interior Department announced that it would be taking the next steps necessary to expand offshore wind generation in the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. President Biden has set a goal of generating 30 gigawatts of power through offshore wind power by the year 2030. The department will propose a lease sale off the coast of the Carolinas, conduct an environmental review of a project off the coast of Massachusetts, and further assess interest in further developments in the Gulf of Mexico.

Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland expressed her support of the development saying, “These milestones represent great potential for addressing climate change through a clean, reliable, domestic energy resource while providing good-paying jobs. We have an exciting road ahead, and Interior is up to the challenge! As we make progress toward deploying 30 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030, the Department will continue to ensure any development of clean energy resources is done responsibly and sustainably.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For officials in the Interior Department as they work to find clean energy solutions for the future.
  • That God would give Secretary Haaland wisdom on how to fulfill Interior Department’s mission.
  • That President Biden would seek God’s guidance as he looks to reduce pollution in the nation.
