About Us

A sea change is taking place in America’s energy industry and SouthCoast Wind is on the forefront – one where abundant, renewable and low-cost offshore wind energy will meet the significant energy demands of the populous coastal regions of New England.

SouthCoast Wind is developing an offshore wind lease area off the coast of Massachusetts that will generate over 2,400 megawatts—enough to power over a million homes and businesses.

SouthCoast Wind will also improve the economic well-being and quality of life in many communities throughout Southern New England through its public investments, fostering a robust supply chain and creating thousands of well-paying jobs. But what is most unique and inspiring about the growing offshore wind industry is the commitment of SouthCoast Wind and other offshore wind developers to address environmental justice and create economic opportunities for diverse and underserved communities.

SouthCoast Wind 1 will deliver approximately 1,200 MW via an electric grid connection at Brayton Point/Somerset, Massachusetts in the late 2020s and will be among the largest contributors toward meeting the region’s net-zero emissions goal. SouthCoast Wind is also looking at Brayton Point for interconnection of the second 1,200 MW of electricity generated in the lease area. Falmouth, MA continues to remain an option for this second phase while grid capacity and timing of necessary upgrades are determined.

Backed by OW Ocean Winds, an established developer of offshore wind projects worldwide with deep experience in managing the complexities of offshore energy development projects, SouthCoast Wind looks forward to a more just, sustainable and innovative energy future.

About Ocean Winds

Ocean Winds (OW) is an international company dedicated to offshore wind energy and created as a 50-50 joint venture, owned by EDP Renewables and ENGIE. Based on our belief that offshore wind energy is an essential part of the global energy transition, we develop, finance, build and operate offshore wind farm projects all around the world.

When EDPR and ENGIE combined their offshore wind assets and project pipeline to create OW in 2019, the company had a total of 1.5 GW under construction and 4.0 GW under development. OW has been adding rapidly to that portfolio and is now on a trajectory to reach the 2025 target of 5 to 7 GW of projects in operation, or construction, and 5 to 10 GW under advanced development. Currently, OW’s offshore wind gross capacity already operating, in construction or with advanced development rights granted has reached around 17 GW.

In the United States, Ocean Winds is currently developing three offshore wind projects: SouthCoast Wind, Bluepoint Wind, a project off the coast of New York and New Jersey that has the potential to produce 1,700 megawatts of clean energy, and Golden State Wind, a floating offshore wind project off the Central Coast of California that has the potential to produce 2,000 megawatts of clean energy.
