NC Governor Proposes Wind Energy Study

On March 6, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) proposed a $25 billion budget for the 2019 to 21 fiscal years. Included in the budget was a one-year, $300,000 study that would analyze the state’s potential for offshore wind energy, if approved by state legislators.

Similar studies conducted in Mid-Atlantic and New England states have led to those states starting to corner the U.S. offshore wind market, Katharine Kollins, the president of the advocacy group Southeastern Wind Coalition, told Energy News Network

The study, Kollins said, would help North Carolina maintain a competitive advantage.

A December 2018 analysis conducted for the state of Virginia by renewable energy consultant group BVG Associates recommends a “collaborative, multi-state cluster” to service southern Atlantic offshore wind projects. –By Hannah McAlister
