The announcement further positions California to become a frontrunner in floating offshore wind, not only in the United States but internationally.

Development of the Morro Bay Wind Energy Area will bolster Castle Wind’s mission of providing lasting economic, clean energy, and environmental benefits for local communities and California as a whole.

Castle Wind is proud to have proposed this area for floating offshore wind development in 2016 and to have engaged with community leaders and local stakeholders throughout the last five years.

As we look ahead, we will continue to grow our diverse coalition of supporters and meet with all stakeholders who have an interest in offshore wind development off the Central Coast.

Castle Wind looks forward to participating in the Morro Bay Wind Energy Area lease auction in 2022.
