Interior Department Proposing More Wind Farms

Five acres off California coast to be auctioned. 

Last week, the Department of the Interior proposed to auction five acres in federal waters off the coast of California for offshore wind development. The sale notice includes three lease areas off central California near Morro Bay and two areas off the northern coast near Humboldt County. 

The department estimates that the areas, which total about 373,000 acres, could one day generate more than 4.5 gigawatts of energy and power 1.5 million homes. 

Public comment will be sought for the next 60 days, after which the Interior Department will decide whether to issue a final sale notice that would include a date for the auction. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for U.S. energy officials as offshore wind energy is developed and promoted.
  • For Secretary Haaland to seek God’s direction as the department elicits feedback for wind energy off the coast of California.
  • For Interior personnel as they steward the country’s resources.
