The government plans to build seven large wind farms to provide wind power to more than ten million American households by 2030. Those parks should be located on the coasts of New York and California and the Gulf of Mexico. Washington is releasing 12 billion euros for investment. By 2030, wind farms should be well within 30 gigawatts. All of this is in line with the climate aspirations of President Joe Biden’s administration.
The government is currently working on an ambitious roadmap to “advance plans aimed at combating climate change, creating higher-paying jobs and accelerating change for a cleaner energy future.”
According to the White House, parks will reduce CO2 emissions by 78 million tons, while creating tens of thousands of new jobs.
Seven offers will go on sale by 2025 in the Gulf of Maine, the Mid-Atlantic coast, the Gulf of Mexico and the beaches of New York, Carolinas, California and Oregon.
Currently, there is only one Black Wind Wind Farm in the United States. The park was completed in 2016 and offers 30 MW.
