Interior Approves Second Offshore-Wind Project

Turbines off the coast of Rhode Island are expected to generate 130 megawatts. 

Last week, the Department of the Interior announced that it had approved a new offshore wind energy generation project off the coast of Rhode Island. As a part of the president’s administration’s effort to expand offshore wind projects to 30 gigawatts of production by 2030, this new site is expected to produce 130 megawatts. This is the second project approved by the Interior Project, the first being off the coast of Massachusetts. 

Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland said of the project, “We have no time to waste in cultivating and investing in a clean energy economy that can sustain us for generations. Just one year ago, there were no large-scale offshore wind projects approved in the federal waters of the United States. Today there are two, with several more on the horizon. This is one of many actions we are taking in pursuit of the President’s goal to open the doors of economic opportunity to more Americans.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Interior Department officials as they evaluate locations for future power generation.
  • For Secretary Haaland to seek the Lord’s wisdom on how to lead the Department.
  • For President Biden to be led by God in stewarding His creation.
