Offshore Wind Energy

Some objective information about local offshore wind energy project.

The Ocean City Chapter would be happy to see wind energy projects off of our coast. But we don’t have an Environmental Impact Statement yet, so we are holding off on any final decision about these project until we have all of the information.

Note there is a short two-pager here and a longer FAQ about the proposed project here. It is about 15 pages including lots of footnotes.
• Two-pager on wind energy in general.
• And there is a longer FAQ on the Skip Jack proposal off of MD and DE.

Have more questions? Check out this webinar featuring a 30 minute Powerpoint overview of the basics of how offshore wind works, what the potential impacts are, and what projects are proposed in our area. Q&A with Surfrider staff at the end.
