Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut received proposals for various offshore wind projects as the New England states hope to increase the availability of renewable energy.

The three states also formed an agreement to potentially partner in offshore wind development. 

Massachusetts received bids from Avangrid Renewables, South Coast Wind Energy, and Vineyard Offshore after a substantial solicitation for offshore wind project bids. 

According to, Gov. Maura Healey’s administration will review bids over the coming months and will “coordinate with Connecticut and Rhode Island to evaluate multi-state projects that would increase benefits for the region, lower costs, and enhance project viability.”
