Report Released on Offshore Wind
May 11, 2023
The California Energy Commission recently released a report on the different permitting options for offshore wind energy facilities off the California coast currently being considered as part of the state’s offshore wind strategic plan.
Of California’s 58 counties, 19 border the Pacific Ocean. Depending on the location of proposed offshore wind development areas, several counties could be involved in permitting some portion of an offshore wind development project.
The CEC will conduct additional outreach with various stakeholders in the coming months to develop and gather input on the different options outlined in this report. A strategic plan must be submitted to the California Natural Resources Agency and the Legislature no later than June 30, 2023.
