Final approval for the Vineyard Wind Project will likely not happen for at least another 18 months, according to information received from multiple sources by The Connecticut Public Radio. Vineyard Wind, the nation's first large-scale offshore wind project, was set to start construction this year. The USD 2.8 billion, 800-MW proposed project off the coast of Massachusetts could power more than 400,000 homes.

Vineyard Wind was supposed to be the second offshore wind farm in the US, after the 30-MW Block Island park off Rhode Island that entered into service in December 2016.

Vineyard Wind was just one of 19 companies that qualified to take part in the bidding process of a Bureau of Ocean Energy Management wind auction held in December 2018 for three tracts of the Atlantic Ocean located 19.8 nautical miles from Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., 16.7 nautical miles from Nantucket, Mass., and 44.5 nautical miles from Block Island, Rhode Island.
