Press release available only in original language. 

DONG #energy is teaming up with Eversource #energy - the premier transmission builder in New England – who has acquired a 50% ownership interest in Bay State Wind in order to jointly develop the project.  

The proposed offshore wind farm would be located approximately 15-25 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard in an area that has the potential to develop at least 2,000 megawatts of electricity – enough to power one million Massachusetts homes. 

“Offshore wind has great potential in the U.S., and I am very pleased that we are entering into a strategic partnership with Eversource to develop our first project in New England,” said Samuel Leupold, EVP and CEO of #dongenergy Wind Power. “Offshore wind will add to the diversity, and the security, of Massachusetts’ #energy mix.”

“New England is setting the pace for a national clean #energy future with its proven track record in #energy efficiency and bold clean #energy goals,” said Jim Judge, President and CEO of Eversource #energy.  “Our partnership with #dongenergy on Bay State Wind represents a significant opportunity to help make those goals a reality and we look forward to delivering this renewable and reliable source of power to customers.”
