Wind Energy Environmental Assessment for Mid-Atlantic

July 26, 2011

The Department of the Interior (DOI) posted this press release regarding potential wind energy areas along the US Eastern seaboard. The draft Environmental Assessment (EA) and public comments are provided within the link. This is part of a “Smart from the Start” initiative, an environmentally responsible strategy for renewable energy along the Atlantic Outer Continental Shelf (OCS).

Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, is quoted as saying, “The ‘Smart from the Start’ initiative will help companies identify areas offshore that are best suited for wind development, while also reducing the potential for costly delays and red tape.” He also said the DOI will work with state renewable energy task forces to “advance renewable energy development carefully and responsibly”.

As renewable development along the Atlantic OCS approaches reality, so does the need to harness natural energy resources while being environmentally responsible. I think we can do both!
