The USA's first offshore wind project is up and running off the coast of Rhode Island, thanks to dozens, if not hundreds, of people who never gave up on their commitment to clean energy and a new industry for the Ocean State.
Now, several other states are promising to leap ahead of Rhode Island. Which will succeed? Those who can balance the delicate and crucial issues of cost, timing, beneficial policies, responsible siting, and public support.
JHB Strategies is here to help create that balance. Julia Bovey began working on offshore wind siting in Massachusetts in 2004, and has experience at the federal, state, and local levels.
