DOI Issues Proposed Sale Notice for California Offshore Wind

First west coast offshore wind lease proposed.

The Department of the Interior (DOI) has proposed two areas off the coast of California to lease for offshore wind energy. The areas would cover a combined 373,268 acres on the Outer Continental Shelf and would generate an estimated 4.5 gigawatts of offshore wind energy, enough to power more than 1.5 million homes. The department has opened the proposal to a 60-day public comment period, which began May 31.

“The demand and momentum around our work to build a clean energy future is undeniable,” said Interior Secretary Deb Haaland. “Today, we are taking another step toward unlocking the immense potential of offshore wind energy offshore our nation’s west coast to help combat the effects of climate change while creating good-paying jobs.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for Secretary Haaland as she carries out administration policy.
  • That U.S. energy officials seek the Lord’s guidance as offshore wind energy is developed and promoted.
  • For Interior personnel as the department evaluates feedback regarding wind energy off the coast of California.
