Maryland Regulators to Review 2 Offshore Wind Proposals

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- Two plans for offshore wind projects will be reviewed by Maryland regulators.
    
The Public Service Commission announced Tuesday that it has opened a docket to begin the formal review of two projects that could be built 10 to 30 miles off Maryland's coast.
    
The applicants are US Wind Inc., a subsidiary of Toto Holding SpA, and Skipjack Offshore Wind, a subsidiary of Deepwater Wind Holdings.
    
The commission is set to decide on the proposed wind project applications by May 17.
    
Deepwater Wind says construction on its 120-megawatt Skipjack Wind Farm could begin as early as 2020, with the project in operations in 2022. US Wind's proposal could produce up to 750 megawatts and could be online in 2020.
