Biden Administration Announces East Coast Offshore Wind Plan

On Monday, the Biden administration announced a plan to deploy 30,000 megawatts of offshore wind turbines by 2030, creating tens of thousands of jobs and creating enough energy to power over 10 million homes. To meet that target, the government will speed up the permitting of offshore wind projects off the Atlantic coast. This is a big step for the Untied States, as its renewable energy efforts have not been nearly sufficient, especially under the Trump administration. Many other countries with lots of coastline have had offshore wind projects in the works for many years now, but the US was running behind, even with thousands of miles of coastline. Our country still needs trillions of dollars of investments to be even half powered by renewable energy, but this is a great start.
