Map: MA Offshore Wind Project Areas


The Offshore Wind Work Group's mission is to represent the best interests of the island to wind developers seeking to build windfarms offshore Nantucket. The work group will assist Town leadership to:

  • Evaluate local environmental, economic, and/or visual impacts
  • Determine appropriate project mitigation measures to offset perceived and assessed impacts, including through the Section 106 review process
  • Negotiate for tangible community benefits, such as through a Community Benefit Agreement, offshore wind mitigation trust fund, or other economic development arrangements, as are standard in the offshore wind industry for impacted communities
