Abstract

These data represent offshore wind turbines and supporting infrastructure within the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone as of January 2024. Seven turbines are fully operational, five at the Block Island Wind Farm site and two at the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind site. The seven turbines are responsible for 42 megawatts of power generation capacity. Seventy-five additional turbines are actively under construction at the Vineyard Wind 1 site and South Fork Wind site. Revolution Wind has received final approval, and construction is anticipated to begin on 67 turbines in 2024.
