US Wind won the tender promoted by the State of Maryland for the supply of renewable energy from offshore wind farms. Maryland Public Service Commission has awarded to Us Wind a $3.3 billion contract over 20 years.
By 2020 the company will supply energy to about 500,000 households in Maryland, covering 40% of the state’s green energy needs. On August 19th, 2014, the State of Maryland launched an auction for the concession of an 80,000 acre stretch of water awarded to the Toto Group for the development of a 750 MW Offshore wind farm.
During its life span, the project will support hundreds of highly qualified jobs in engineering, construction and operation.
