The statement is from Josh Kaplowitz, Vice President for Offshore Wind. The final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) is for the proposed Revolution Wind Farm project offshore of Rhode Island. This is the final step before BOEM issues a Record of Decision (ROD) on project approval, expected this summer.

“Today’s news is a critical step forward for Rhode Island and Connecticut’s progress toward their clean energy goals. Once approved, Revolution Wind Farm will create an estimated 1,200 direct construction jobs and thousands of additional indirect jobs through the project’s investment in the local economy. These jobs will be the result of a domestic clean energy source that will power more than 350,000 Connecticut and Rhode Island homes and prevent over 48 million tons of CO2 from being emitted over the life of the project.

“The final Environmental Impact Statement is the result of rigorous review and extensive public comment from key stakeholders, demonstrating BOEM’s commitment to building clean power in a way that protects the environment and incorporates community feedback – a commitment that the industry shares. ACP looks forward to BOEM’s final approval of Revolution this summer and the jobs, manufacturing capacity, and energy security that America’s offshore wind industry will bring.”
